All Hail the Soviet Fleet!, TASS No. 1018, July 29, 1944
1435 x 1228 mm
Chasing the enemy from all seas
Protecting the expanses of their native land,
Through the nest of our foes' batteries
Our formidable battleships strike.
And our enemy chokes on seawater
For attacking us as bandits.
All hail the Soviet fleet
And Soviet naval heroes!
