Das Boot – Johann……English [CC]
Sh!t fog. Sh!t weather. Sh!t damn patrol. None of our folks back home know where we are. No mail, contact forbidden, nothing. I guess when we`re sunk, we`re reported missing, some months later. Married yet, Kriechbaum? I didn`t waste any time, eh? We`re working on the fifth one. Johann, it`s good for you, fresh air. No. They`re strange, these machine room people. “Aid to cleanliness”, four letters. Bath. Thank you. “Deep affection”, four letters. Love. Perfect. Intellectual starvation, I would say. Decoded signal, Captain. One moment. New course , Captain? One minute. Can I see the message Captain? Convoy Square at AK 2246. Mean course, 60 degrees. Speed, 8 knots. U-37. U-37, that`s Martin`s boat moving in to attack. Too far away. We`ll never make it. Damned! When do we get some orders? Well, Johann? Captain. What`s up with the diesels? The diesels seem satisfied, Captain. Satisfied and all full. The chief is worried about our fuel consumption. The chief is a careful man. What`s your opinion? The chief knows what`s best. Funny times, Johann. To be careful means very little. They need heroes…. …and they are not too particular. They make use of a broken hero. Like Thomsen. Or a dead hero. Like Kelsch. A good seaman is also a careful seaman, right Johann? Says as much in naval regulations. Isn`t that so? On these diesels you can depend, Captain. It`s all right, Johann.
