From AOK6/OQu to OKH/Gen.OQu
Army Group B OQu
Staff Don OQu

Point 1 of day report 30.11.1942

The supply situation of the surrounded troops is reported separately from there.

Air supply increased but still not sufficient.
Flown were:
22,5 to l.F.H
30 to 10 cm K 18
122,5 cbm Otto
0,5 cbm Diesel
Taking over of command of air supply by VIII. Flieger corps has positive effect.
Supply situation of Tschir front secured. Supply of supply base Tormossin started. To supply impending operations and to execute the air supply, increasingly l.F.H 18 and s.F.H 18 have to be moved up. Fuel situation not improved.... Moving up bread(900.000 portions) from Millerowo to Tazinskaja ties down a lot of transport capacity for a long time. Transporting up bread from the rear desirable.
Multiple air attacks on railway station Morosowskaja in which 2 EKW and 3 waggons were destroyed".

Point 1 of day report 01.12.1942

The supply situation of the surrounded troops is reported separately.
Air supply broken off because of bad weather after a good start.
Flown were:
ammo
35 to l.F.H.(mixed 18 and 16)
6 to s.F.H

Fuel
48 cbm Otto
0,5 cbm Diesel

11 bags of mail
580 anode batteries
483 wounded brought back

Sufficient supply goods readied for 02.12.
Intention: fuel, ammo(l.F.H,s.F.H, 10 cm K18), bread.

Supply situation on Tschir front put in order. Fuel situation better by moving up fuel trains. For a supply of intended operations the level of fuel inflow by train must be maintained at the actual level.
The moving up of feld gendarmerie forces is requested for extensive traffic direction missions, because the own feld gendarmerie have suffered high losses and are almost fully deployed in the front."

Point 1 of day report 08.12.1942

The supply situation of the surrounded troops is reported separately.
Air supply insufficient. In the coming days higher quantities of food must be delivered by air supply. As a consequence there will a considerable decrease in the delivery of ammo and fuel. The increased use of planes for air supply will be vital for maintaining the combat strength of the surrounded units. Part of the HE's had to break off the air supply because of combat use .
Flown were:
21 JU and 63 HE
96 to ammo,197 bags of bread, 193 cartons of bread, 81 cases of fruit slices,75 cases of chocolate, 55 cases lard and canned meat, some cases of cigarettes and tobacco, comunications material; 0,9 to medical material,30 blankets, 21,4 cbm Otto, 0,2 cbm oil, 64 bags of mail.

417 wounded were brought back, in addition 16 rumanians.
The supply base Tormossin was supplied as follows:
614 to ammo, 337 to food, 805 cbm fuel, 13 cbm motor oil.

The supply situation of the surrounded troops is reported separately.
Supply situation of Tschir front secured.
Ammo consumption, especially artillery and AT ammo continually increases.
Further column capacity for the supply package in the first supply phase rolls in the Army area.
At 9.12 weaker air attacks of the enemy as on the day before on the supply base Morosowskaja. In the transshipment point Tazinskaja were destroyed by fighterbomber attacks:
30 cbm Otto, 100 liters motor oil, 75 kg fat, 210 shots l.F.H , 24 cartridges 10 cm K 18, 468 3,7 cm Pzgr.Patr.Pak
Because of bad weather situation no air supply. The AOK points out with emphasis that at the start of better weather in the highest possible the air supply has to be executed to compensate the deficient inflow in the bad weather period.
Even the lowest reserves at the encircled units are used up by insufficient supply.
Intent for 10.12: top priority artillery ammo."

The supply situation of the surrounded troops is reported separately.
Air supply insufficient. As of now at least 60 to of rations have to be flown in daily. With the same number of planes this means an unbearable drop of the quantities of ammo and fuel flown in. Therefore, the number of aircraft has to be correspondingly increased.
Supply base Tormossin increased to 903 to.
