Content: This Japanese-language propaganda leaflet was produced by the Far Eastern Liaison Office at the end of the Pacific War. An English translation of the text is attached. It notifies Col Ôuchi to surrender to the Allies as the supplies to Japanese troops have been cut off and the course of war cannot be changed. The Allies will send boats in the morning of 28 July from Wajaboela to Pilowo and the boat will return to Wajaboela in the afternoon. The same procedure will be repeated on 29 July. It urges Col Ôuchi to surrender with his men as they will be treated honourably.
