Propaganda leaflets issued by the Far Eastern Liason Office in Papua-New Guinea, Indonesia, Timor, Malaya, and Borneo during WWII. The leaflets, written in Japanese, Indonesian, Chinese, Malay, Pidgin, Portuguese and Dutch, with English translations, were dropped from aeroplanes over parts of Papua New Guinea, the East Indies and South-East Asia in a bid to reduce the morale of the Japanese, convince them to surrender and to stop the locals from assisting them. Many are undated but those which are dated are from the first half of 1945 until July of that year. Some have colour or black and white illustrations.
