Surrendered Enemy Personnel Leaflet

This 1955 government leaflet shows ex-guerillas smiling and enjoying themselves to demonstrate to anyone holding out in the jungles that it was possible to surrender and not be executed or sent to prison indefinitely. The reverse of this leaflet explained who they all were and the faults of the leadership in the local area. It then encouraged them to hand in their weapons and take advantage of safe conduct passes to leave the insurgency once and for all.
