Original caption: A Japanese soldier of the 7th Army, Battery A, 522nd FA, 442nd Combat Team in France, fits base plate to a 105 mm. shell after propaganda pamphlets have been inserted. A small charge of powder in the projectile blows off base plate over enemy territory, allowing leaflets to drift to ground troops below.
