HC Deb 13 February 1945 vol 408 c52W
Mr. Martin

asked the Secretary of State for War if he has any information as to the sources from which the Nazi resistance pockets still holding out in southern or western France receive supplies of food, ammunition, etc.; and how these supplies reach them.

Sir J. Grigg

These Germans rely for their food partly on supplies available in the pockets themselves and partly on foraging expeditions. Limited quantities of supplies are brought from Germany by planes, and possibly by submarines, though in the case of ammunition and petrol they are probably dependent to a great extent on existing stocks.
