In Zeiten wie diesen sollten wir alle an einem Strange ziehen.

English Translation

In times like this, we should all pull the hank together.

Can anyone clarify the meaning of this? Is it UK slang?

I’ve never heard “pull the hank” in my life, and I can’t find anything relevant for it on google. I wonder if it’s a really bad auto-correct for “we should all pull together”.


I cannot comment on the English translation but "Strange is archaic.
It is simply “Strang” today.
The expression itself is common.
