- Sunk 20 March 1945 southeast of the Faeroes, in position 59.42N, 04.55W, by air-launched homing torpedoes from a British Liberator (Sqdn. 86/B). (Postwar assessment)
Notes. This attack was probably against a nonsub target.
Men lost from U-boats
Unlike many other U-boats, which during their service lost men due to accidents and various other causes, U-905 did not suffer any casualties (we know of) until the time of her loss.
