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. 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-1106 did not suffer any casualties (we know of) until the time of her loss.
