|Fate||11 Jul 1917 - Last contact on July 11, 1917 while en route to patrol station off Ireland. 40 dead (all hands lost).|
Loss possibly linked to D/C attack on July 12 off Norway. The German official history notes an U-boat was operating through at least July 26 in the Irish Sea at this time that could only have been U 69, though this does not offer a cause for her loss.
There was another U 69 in World War Two
That boat was launched from its shipyard on 19 Sep 1940 and commissioned into the Kriegsmarine on 2 Nov 1940. Take a look at U 69 from WWII.
