General notes on this boat
2 Apr 1945. On 2 April, 1945 U-1109 had to return to base due to technical problems.
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-1109 did not suffer any casualties (we know of) until the time of her loss.
