    Outrageous. This is no way to run a ship, let alone a Navy. The German Navy is in for a massive house-cleaning as knowledge of the truly low standards aboard must have been widely known throughout the upper ranks of the German Navy. I think several firing squads and many lashings and keel-haulings will be the order of the day. Oops, I forgot, I'm not in charge of the German navy so I suppose it will all be swept under the dirty rug.
