    Merchant Marine In German Is:
    From: Wolfgang K�berer
    Date: 2004 Nov 13, 18:43 +0100

    Dear Henry,
    "Handelsmarine" is also a correct translation, whereas "Handelsschiffmarine"
    is not - at least as far as my feeling for my own native tongue is
    concerned.
    Apart from that I`d be glad to assist you in searching for German books no
    matter whether they`re about the "Handelsschiffmarine" or any other subject.
    Wolfgang

    Betreff: Re: AW: MERCHANT MARINE IN GERMAN IS:
    
    Wolfgang, please consult Marinewoerterbuch, 5-sprachig, herausgegeben vom
    Oberkommando der Kriegsmarine, in about 1942, wherein merchant marine =
    Handelsmarine; merchant navigation = Handelsschiffahrt; and, merchant
    ship = Handelsschiff. Languages do change and Germans were/are notorious
    for building elaborate and descriptive nouns, buit when I sailed aboard
    German ships I described myself as being in the Handelsschiffmarine, or
    Handelsmarine - after all, I did say "at one time". Would be interested
    in discussing with you a search for a german book that I have been
    looking for over the years.
