Sunk on 9 April 1945 in the Kattegat north-west of Göteborg, Sweden, in position 57.58N, 11.15E, by strafing and rockets from 10 British Mosquito aircraft (143 Sqn RAF/H,D,K,A,I,G,Z & 235 Sqn RAF/P,W,N). 45 dead (all hands lost).
This boat was fitted with a Schnorchel underwater-breathing apparatus and sailed equipped with it in April 1945 but it was of course installed prior to that date. Read more about the Schnorchel and see list of fitted boats.
Men lost from U-boats
Unlike many other U-boats, which during their service lost men due to accidents and various other causes, U-1065 did not suffer any casualties (we know of) until the time of her loss.
