Dear Francesco,

Can you give me your sources for the figures of 3,000 tons of foodstuffs and 78 trucks shipped to the Afrika Korps? Do you know the ships involved in the previous trips to Tunisia? When did the traffic stop completely? I have some information that the Mounier network succeeded in sabotaging some of the trucks. Any truth in this?

There is something odd about the position of the sinking of SAINTE MARCELLE as she was not on the direct route from Marseilles to Tunisia but appears to have come from the westward (Algiers?). Also, Italian submarines were usually informed of the French ships they might encounter but this does not seem to have been the case. Explanation?

All the best,

Platon
