|Men of Timor|
|Directed by||Damien Parer|
Men of Timor was a short documentary propaganda film about the guerrilla warfare activities of the Australian forces on Timor.
The film opens with a map of the area showing Timors in relation to the north Australian coast, and briefly explains the circumstances of the left behind Australian troops who did not surrender but carried on a guerrilla war against the Japanese. After some very difficult forays behind enemy lines to capture equipment for radio, they manage to contact Darwin. Wary of a possible Japanese trick they ask the men what the first name of a wife of a particular sergeant was. When the correct answer, Joan, is returned, the Australian military starts to airlift supplies to the guerrillas and their Timorese allies.
