The community member Backdraft57 asked me to translate and post some articles and other stuff from some old german propaganda newspaper he owns.

So Celeon puts all his poor knowledge about the english language together and translated like hell. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

This is going to be a long read so be warned ! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I just noticed that pics have become very big because of their high resolution.

Its better if you save the pics to your hard drives and open them from there.

Translation of article above:

THE PARACHUTE OF THE U-BOAT MEN : THE TAUCH-RETTER


On an u-boat , everybody must know how to use the "Tauch-Retter" because , as an important part of the emergency equipment it has the same life saving

purpose like the parachute has for pilots.


With the Tauchretter it is possible to leave the u-boat in case that it is impossible to surface it anymore.

The Tauchretter is similar used to an normal lifesaver vest.
It contains an small amount of oxygen for the way to the surface.

The oxygen is breathed through an breathing device that has an mouthpiece on which it is vital to bite on to ensure not loosing it. The Nose gets closed by

an small clamp to protect it from the water.

Every u-boat men recieves an Tauch-Retter training in the so called "Tauch-Topf" during his time in the academy so that he can later use it safely in every

situation.

*


Training with the Tauchretter (Picture above).

The instructor shows his cadet how to use the mouthpiece of his Tauchretter.

For this Tauchretter training an big swimming pool aboard an cruise liner is used.

The cadets dive down to the bottom of the pool by using lead weights around their necks to ensure they stay down and wait for the command "surface!".

All cadets are bound to an safety rope that gets also used for transmitting the instructions from above. So they learn how to move underwater with the

Tauchretter that becomes the "Parachute of the u-boat men" in cases of emergency.

(Of course Celeon wants money from Wybert for this)

1. It has been a long marsh but the song still sounds fresh and happy.


2. Peter: "Why dont you sing with us , so the marching feels easier again"

3. Paul: "....when your throat feels rough and dry from all the dust....."


4. Peter: "...... then you take a cough drop from Wybert. Wybert protects your throat from cough and makes your voice clear again."

An rememberance to the "Seal". On may 3. the english u-boat "Seal" was forced by our flyiers to surface and surrender.

Its insignias , the ship bell , and the rudder wheel are now an rememberance to this great success.

5 million bruttoregister tons on the sea floor

On august 6. 1940 the high command of the Wehrmacht publishes an part balance : 4.986.860 Bruttoregister tons of enemy merchant ships have been sunk since

the beginning of the war - not encounting the destruction that has been made an that caused the loss of another one and a half million tons.


What does this loss mean exactly ?

A ship of 1000 tons can carry an average of 1400 tons of goods.
So the sinking of 5 million Bruttoregistertons equals an loss of goods with an weight of 6.982.360 tons.

If you want to put such an amount of goods on goods waggona which can carry 15 tons and are 9 meters long, you need 465.491 waggons.

These waggons without space between them put together would combine to an train of 4190 kilometers length.

This would be a train that would reach ,like our drawing shows, from the northborder of britain to the Cape Verde islands of africa.

Translation :

ONE YEAR OF WAR AGAINST ENGLAND

And now a total blockade of the british island


In september of the last year - so exactly today last year - the wehrmacht newsreel reported for the first time the sinking on enemy merchant cargo space.


Since then the german navy and the german airforce were at work without rest. They attacked and ripped with their torpedoes ,one limb after the other out of

the english blockade that was right from the beginning only very uncomplete laid around germany.

England was not succesful with - like they did in the world war - putting the "Marshall hunger" into march against germany.

It was tried to build up an blockade front in the west but this couldnt be called a blockade ring around germany in any way.

Englands "heaviest weapon" stayed much too weak and showed itself as an boomerang that turns against its user.

Germany turned the spear around. A single front reaching from the North Cape to Spain was build that threatens englands infrastructure in the same way. The

island has been cut off entirely from the european continent.

All merchant lines to the countrys on the european continent were cut and alone with this act ,40 % of life vital supplys were stopped.

These losses hit a country that can only feed itself to 1/4 while the other 3/4 need to be imported.

If you look over there now you will see a country that was used to fight wars on the cost of third people by tradition.

An country that was not prepared for an situation like the german bockade that was announced on august 7. and that has as only limited ressources of coal

while its fully dependancy on food imports from the european main continent is even higher.

It took long till London recognized the signs of time.

They started with an fever like hurry to take actions for protecting the british economy. The rationising of food became heavier and heavier. Golf and soccer

fields were altered to farmlands.

Scrap metal was collected , the work time extended , and some sort of price regulation was organized.

New ministryÔ┬┤s were formed and new ministerÔ┬┤s for everything were supposed to pull the waggon out of the mud.

Leaks were stuffed in an leaking political system , patches put on clearly recognizable wounds that worsened further under the cover that was used to hide

them.

All ideals of the so called liberal marketing were thrown overboard and an copy of the german economy system was tried on which they used to laugh at before.

But everything was still stuffing and repair work. The plans were running after the happenings that came faster and faster.

What england had before was their faith in the might of gold -- (The article gets continued on the other side which Celeon has no pic of http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/cry.gif )


------------------------------------------------


And here is the rest of the pics showing the journals to be the famous "Die Wehrmacht" journals and another journal from vienna ,austria called "Wiener Illustrierte" aswell as an nice Luftwaffe belt.

Celeon once had also such an belt while he was in the army but not with an Luftwaffe eagle on it. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
