    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.
