Papua senchû no ichi sôwa [An incident in the Papuan campaign].
A propaganda leaflet produced by the Far Eastern Liaison Office (FELO) during the Second World War. This leaflet is written in Japanese and was distributed to Melanesia and the Netherlands East Indies. The leaflet is accompanied by an English translation of the text. It reports that Captain Doi and Major-General Yamagata were the first to escape from the battlefield when the situation began deteriorating during the Papuan campaign. A small cartoon in the bottom left hand corner of the leaftet illustrates this story and shows two men running down a beach.
