Sunk on 29 March 1945 in the Norwegian Sea north of the Shetland Islands, in position 61.46N, 02.16W, by depth charges from a British Liberator aircraft (224 Sqn RAF/O). 46 dead (all hands lost).
This boat was fitted with a Schnorchel underwater-breathing apparatus and sailed equipped with it in March 1945 but it was of course installed prior to that date.
Men lost from U-boats
Unlike many other U-boats, which during their service lost men due to accidents and various other causes, U-1106 did not suffer any casualties (we know of) until the time of her loss.
