    I'm sorry if this has been asked before, but in "The Squire Of Gothos", Trelane says something to Carl Yeager in German and then starts chanting something in German. Does anyone have any ideal what he's saying? Thanks!

    It's been a long time but... roughly " .. And, officer Jaeger.. and the German soldier, no? One, two, three, four... off to the shooting war we go" . Roughly. Anyone more fluent in German please correct me. Like I said, it's been a while.

    Just a little correction from a german native speaker here:
    after "One, two, three, four" he´s saying more accurate:
    "Let´s go with the rifle!" The german word for rifle is rhyming with four.

    He says "A German soldier, no?" the literal translation.
