"THREE FELLA JAPANMAN" "One fella Japanman, two fella Japanman, three fella," exclaimed a native police boy, crouched with several Australians beside a track near Kulauru Mission, east of Yamil, in New Guinea. The party was on an early morning patrol to investigate the area for ene'ny toot marks when movement was heard down the track. Hidden from sight by the high kunai grass at the edge of the track, they watched three unarmed Japs walk past, equipped with a white flag of surrender but little else. Three more Japs were surrendering, making the unit's haul nine in a week and G8 for the entire mountain campaign. The three latest capt : were in poor physical condition, . _ir clothes were ragged and only one wore boots.
