DescriptionKorea. c. 1951. For weeks Communist propaganda notices have been left where UN troops could find them. The three being held by unidentified soldiers from the 3rd Battalion, The Royal Australian Regiment (3RAR), are typical examples of these notices. They are a variation of the surrender leaflets which the Chinese were throwing out not long ago, and which our troops also declined to take very seriously. These notices read: "Surrender means safety. Charge means death", "Think that you don't strive for peace & you must die in Korea. Sooner or later", "Only that you persist on peace, war can't go on".
