NotesNotes : The Nyon Arrangements for patrolling the main train routes of the West Mediterranean were insufficient to prevent ruthless sinkings of British Merchant shipping in Spanish waters by Axis air and submarine attacks. France answered the protests of Chamberlain and Halifax by saying that he could not claim the legal right of a "belligerent" to blockade, yet he intended to exercise it. The sinkings continued.
