In addition to the list of UBV photometries of 955 galactic foreground stars in the direction to the Large Magellanic Cloud published by Gochermann et al. (1993a), a supplement of 545 stars is presented, which have been measured with the same photometric accuracy. Moreover, less reliable photometries of 379 further foreground stars are listed in a separate table. The homogeneous data base of more than high accuracy photometries represented by these stars has been used to construct a reddening distribution map of the galactic foreground towards the LMC by Oestreicher et al. (1995).
Key words: catalogues / Galaxy: stellar content / galaxies: Magellanic Clouds
