Mabel: "I picked up these Japanese leaflets after air raids at Bowen Road Military Hospital, Hong Kong."

The leaflet was aimed at the Indian soldiers in Hong Kong. The text reads:

ELEPHANT IS EMPLOYED BY YOU AND ENGLISHMAN EMPLOYS YOU.
ELEPHANT IS GIVEN FOOD BY YOU AND YOU ARE GIVEN WHIP BY ENGLISHMAN.
ELEPHANT OBEYS YOU AND YOU ARE AT THE MERCY OF ENGLISHMAN.
