The bodies of three crew members washed ashore on the Danish island of Aerø on 11 February. Its wreck was discovered during clearance work in 1952, partly raised in January 1953 and broken up.
Men lost from U-boats
Unlike many other U-boats, which during their service lost men due to accidents and various other causes, U-923 did not suffer any casualties (we know of) until the time of her loss.
