335 U-boats assigned to this flotilla during its service.


The 5th Flotilla was founded again (see page on the previous combat flotilla with the same name) in June 1941 under the command of Kptlt. Karl-Heinz Moehle, who commanded the Flotilla until the end of the war. Korvkpt. Moehle was sentenced in 1946 for 5 years in prison, because the Allies accused him to give the Laconia-order to the new U-boat commanders before they went out on patrol. He then spent more than 4 years in prison.
