1500 - Offr from GSD 1 Corps arrived to say we were to supply 10 - 3 tonners and 3 - 15 cwts to 7 Armd Div at once. Explained that all our 3 tonners were with Airborne which caused some surprise. GSD branch did not seem to be quite in the picture and are the odd lap or so behind. Agreed to send 2 - 3 tonners and 3 - 15 cwts immediately, and GSD said he would arrange for the return of our remaining 3 - tonners from Airborne.
