Der tag day

From The Great War 1914-1918

Der tag day: "To the day," was the German Navy toast originating some ten or twelve years before the War, in confident anticipation of victory over the British Fleet when war should come. So it is generally understood, but it is only fair to say that many German officers have denied that the toast had special reference to the British Fleet.[1]
