When it pull up Scharnhorst I get the German national anthem. When I pull up an American ship I do not get The Star Spangled Banner.  When I pull up a French ship I do not hear Marseillaise.  Why:?  Just curious. I do not mean this as political....so don't do that. Just wondering.  Well maybe it cannot help but be a tad bit political. Whatever. :Smile_honoring:

What?  Where are you hearing any national anthem?  When you select (pull up) the ship?

Probably means it automatically plays in his head or something like that.

When you pull a ship up in the port of Hamburg, the music playing is a variation of the anthem Deutschlandlied which was the official German Anthem from about 1922 to through the present time.  After WWII, the first two stanza's were dropped I believe but otherwise it's the same athem the Germans used in WWII

Yes. Tks.  Maybe I should not have even mentioned this. Some seemed to not know what I was talking about. Good info.  Carry on. :Smile_honoring:

That's funny in and of itself; I can write 'I'll kill ya', but not [edited] without censorship.

No problem, not a lot of people go around learning other nation's anthems.  The song seemed familiar but it took me a bit to put together what was really playing. :Smile_great:

Really cool movie and this IMO was a GREAT scene.  Anyone know who played Francis?  Hell of an acting job. THE scene that no one forgets if they ever saw that film.

Conrad Dunn - looks to be his first acting job or at least movie.
