Location: Hanging off the back of a Sherman, somewhere in France...
Smudger staggers over to the bar and tops up Bill's drink from a flask of schnapps in his camera bag...

"Do you mean...?":

Das U-Boot Lied

I. Die Stunde hat geschlagen,
Britanniens Macht vergeht,
Durch U-Bootmänner Kühnheit,
Großdeutschlands Stärke lebt.

Refrain
U-Boote fahren -
Gar weit in's Meer hinaus.
U-Boote jagen
Torpedos aus den Rohren raus,
|: Jagen England, England in den Tod. :|

II. Ein Bersten und ein Krachen
Zerreißt des Dampfers Schal'
Die letzte Fahrt zu machen:
Ist das nicht Todeswahl?

Refrain

English:

The U-boat Song (II)

I. The hour has come
Britain's power fades
Through U-boat men's strength
Great Germany's power lives

Refrain
U-boats sail
Far, far into the sea
U-boats hunt
Torpedoes out of the tubes
|: Hunt England, England into death. :|

II. A bursting and a creaking
Breaks the steamer's hull
To make this last journey
Isn't that a choice of death?

Refrain

"Müller! What are you doing here? Haven't seen you since that little jaunt in U-96. Did you get the snaps I sent you? How are you old fellow? Let me give you something to put heart into that Scottish gnats-water!"

Sonderführer-Leutnant Buchheim smartly snaffles the schnapps from Smudger's bag and tips three fingers worth into the glass of his fellow officer.

"Aal the geet drinkin songs Ah knaa are Irish. The ernly English song Ah knaa besides "God Save the King" is the NUFC footie song."

Rughey proceeds to lead the rest of the willing room in a rousing rendition of "Wild Rover" and "Whiskey In The Jar."

"That's my brother, George Best. He's got a row of party medals on his chest. It takes all of the Army and the Navy to take the bra off Mae West!"

"Who needs a refill?" he asks, dropping a wad of cash on the bar.

*a backfiring motorcycle stops outside*

*A dusty looking figure walks in (reminiscent of that motorcycle courier from the movie 1941)*

Afternoon everbody, I felt I should return this bike to the previous owner after our little dragrace a month ago.

*dusts himself down*

I'm in the mood for some booze, my throat is as dry as a bleached skeleton in the desert. Who's buying?

*no-one replies*

Guess I am. Well it ain't my fault you limies are "underpaid, undersexed and under Eisenhower".

*buys a round of drinks*

Thank you, Thank you.

I didn't realize I was also tonights entertainment.

So a couple of German spies are parachuted into England to do some serious spying.
They go into the first pub they come across to see if they could blend in properly.
They walk upto the bar and the Barman asks "What will it be, Gentleman?"
To which the first German spy answers "Two Martinies pleaze."
"Dry, Sir?" asks the Barman.
To which the other German spy screams out "NEIN! ZWEI NATURLICH!"

Bu-dum-Tisch!

Sorry but that appears to be my entire repertoire for today. And it looks like I'm in need
of another drink.

Thank you and goodnight.

Warum Leutnant Buckheim, wie geht es Ihnen ? Es ist eine Weile gewesen. Es war gut, Sie mit uns auf U96 zu haben. Was denken an diesen Platz ?

"Danke geehrter Herr, es war ein Vergnügen, Sie auf dieser memorable Mission zu begleiten. Ich denke, daß größere Bierbecher besser sein würden!"

Buchheim bangs on the bar. "Cold bier for Oberleutnant zur See Müller! And bigger glasses! Mach schnell, mein host!"

The relief bartender rolls his eyes upward and starts dusting off a couple of quart steins unused since the Germans had control of the town. He fills them to the top with ice-cold Stella Artois, and places them carefully on the bar. Buccheim slowly draws a finger down the side of one glass, leaving a clear trail in the misty condensation... You can just hear the wet sound of a round dozen tongues hitting the floor as the rest watch with envy.

The two submariners clink their glasses together gently so as not to spill anything and begin their long, cold, voyage to the bottom of the steins.

:cheers:

"Ahhhhh..."

"Ich danke Ihnen mein Freund, mein guter Freund. Wir hatten einige gute Male an Bord während dieser Reise, und irgendein naher Verlust, den ich denke. Sie müssen erklären mir von selbst, aber unser Bier kommt zuerst !"

The pair look at their biers, then pausing, smile at each other in the knowledge of men who having been through hell together have performed a job well done. Then without a word they begin to slowly sink their ice cold bier. They are watched by the assembled gathering, their kameraderie is unspoken and yet it's presence is witnessed by all.

*pulls head from the bar*

*looks around*

*wipes away drool*

This place's as dead as a doornail.
