    hmm, I was just looking for the camouflage scheme of the HMS Prince of Wales during her sinking (btw it would be very kind of you, if you know a site where I can find it, need it for modelling her in 1/700), when I found out that the motto of the Prince of Wales was Ich dienĀ“ (german for I serve). Is this correct and why did they chosse a german motto ?

    That motto probably comes from the official motto of the Princes of Wales:
