For a very thorough page on this boat please visit the U 35 page operated by Mr. Hans Mair.
Men lost from U-boats
Unlike many other U-boats, which during their service lost men due to accidents and various other causes, U-35 did not suffer any casualties (we know of) until the time of her loss.
There was another U-35 in World War One
That boat was launched from its shipyard on 18 Apr 1914 and commissioned into the Imperial Navy on 3 Nov 1914. The Naval war in WWI was brought to an end with the Armistice signed on 11 Nov, 1918. Read about SM U 35 during WWI.
