Notes: a representative of the 9th Tank Regiment was summoned to receive supplies on March 8th, 1943.

The 8th OGTP (formerly 5th TP) arrived with significant leftovers and only received some types of supplies from the 64th Army warehouses.

Everybody has one day's worth of vodka.

The low levels of supplies of sugar, tobacco, tinned fish, and cookies is due to the fact that these goods are absent from the warehouse.

Chief of the Food Supplies Department of the 64th Army, Lieutenant-Colonel Ivanov."
