An infantry regiment, very close to the enemy. Intense combat.
CHAPLAIN ANTON ALLMER: God be with you, my brave lads! And God bless your weapons! Giving the enemy a bloody good salvo, eh boys?
FALLOTA: Padre – we’re so proud to have a chaplain who’s got the courage to face the gunfire, just like the rest of us, right at the front.
CHAPLAIN ANTON ALLMER: Can I have a little shootette too?
(Fallota hands the gun over to him. The chaplain fires a few shots.)
CHAPLAIN ANTON ALLMER: Bang! Bang!
SHOUTS: Bravo! What a priest! Let them have it, Padre!
BEINSTELLER: Look lads, our dear old padre’s coming over!
CHAPLAIN ANTON ALLMER: God be with you, my brave boys! And God bless your weapons! Giving the enemy a bloody good salvo, eh lads?
BEINSTELLER: It's all running very smoothly.
CHAPLAIN ANTON ALLMER: Please, I’d love to try out a wee cannon.
BEINSTELLER: Our pleasure, bag us some Russians, Padre!
(The chaplain fires a cannon.)
CHAPLAIN ANTON ALLMER: Boom!
SHOUTS: Bravo! Let the scumbags have it, Padre!
BEINSTELLER (to his men): A noble priest! A son of Styria! We must get a piece in the Graz Chronicle, (To the chaplain) Only now, after your sacred hands have fired at the foe, are our weapons truly blessed!
