My understanding is that there must be a depot in both supply sources and

which supply source the fleet is in.  Also, I don't believe that having an
ally's fleet in London makes the question irrelevant this turn, because the
Denmark fleet , under Prussian control, cannot provide a supply line for
British reinforcements.

The issue is that a friendly or allied fleet must be at the start of the supply line. Therefore unless both ends are valid supply sources or connected to a valid supply source by another link, it does matter which end the fleet is on.

I don't think this is the way we've been seeing it before, but Joel brought up a valid point that we have been blurring the sea supply rules a bit.

On the fleet issue, the Denmark fleet is usable for British reinforcement as sea supply requires a friendly or allied fleet and there is an alliance between Britain and Prussia.
