Sunk on 9 April 1945 in the Kattegat north-west of Göteborg, Sweden, in position 57.58N, 11.15E, by strafing and rockets from 10 British Mosquito aircraft (143 Sqn RAF/H,D,K,A,I,G,Z & 235 Sqn RAF/P,W,N). 45 dead (all hands lost).
This boat was fitted with a Schnorchel underwater-breathing apparatus and sailed equipped with it in April 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-1065 did not suffer any casualties (we know of) until the time of her loss.
