Afraid that SEAC leaflets are not well written up. I'll eventually get down to doing this myself, but it will be a while before I can find time to do so. Meanwhile, I'm working to have as complete a collection as I can put together.

A nice personal account by an officer in Force 136 is 'Burmese Outpost' by Anthony Irwin, Collins, 1946. I don't think he talks about the IFBU though.

Hi, do you happen to know which specific IFBU he served in and the dates he was with them? Brief war diaries do exist in SOE records.

If you can send me his name by PM or email I can see if there is a personal file available for him at the National Archives, although that is unlikely.

Also if he has any photos or recollections to share, we'd be fascinated to see them.

Hi I'm helping my dad, who served with the British Army in Burma/India in 1944/45. He was a radio operator with Force 136, and Indian Field Broadcasting Unit. This is one of the few websites that I've found any information, and would love to find out more for him to read. anybody got any interest in this area? He tells me that many documents were destroyed before they left to come home, so maybe that is why there is so little info. Even the British Ministry of Defence can't find much in his service record.

Thank you Ben. Is there any reference article or record from where one can learn more about these?

During the Falkland´s war, some combat rations box  had in their pamphlets inside as having been packaged by "Argentine hands," demonstrating the support of the civilian population to war.
I want to know if this kind of messages can be considered as part of psychological warfare and if there were similar cases of delivery leaflets "in hand" in others conflicts.

The military, long pressed by leftists, began a sincere campaign of psychological warfare directed at all sectors, including the military, in 1968 with their manual - RC 5-2 Operaciones Sicológicas.

This continued in earnest during the "Dirty War," 1977 - RE 9-51 Lucha contra elementos subversivos

These are available for download in Spanish at:

If you don't speak Spanish I can send you my notes in English.

This psychological campaign had its origins in the French school of COIN. Furthermore, the nationalism of the Junta was especially focused on soldiers, the notes in the rations were most likely placed there upon government orders... even if they were, they can be seen as at least a by-product of years of nationalism and remember that the flow of nationalist sentiment is not a one way street.

Hi, the green leaflet is actually SJ/43, which was dropped over Japanese troops in Burma in Oct 1944. It's titled, "The Burma dream is over".
