Post war information (see more post-war boats):
This picture is probably taken right after the boat's surrender.
U-805 operated with the following Wolfpacks during its career:
Seewolf (14 Apr 1945 - 1 May 1945)
This boat was fitted with a Schnorchel underwater-breathing apparatus in January 1945.
Men lost from U-boats
Unlike many other U-boats, which during their service lost men due to accidents and various other causes, U-805 did not suffer any casualties (we know of) until the time of her loss.
