This is one of the best sites I have ever seen! Absolutely fascinating. And I have to tell you how accurate you are -- my father-in-law was aboard the USS Besugo, the submarine that torpedoed U-183 on 23/4/45 off Java. He said there was one survivor, the executive officer. Sure enough, your database confirms that there was one survivor. However, one book currently in print called, I believe, U-Boat Losses, says there were no survivors. It would be very interesting to find out the name of that survivor, and whether he is still alive today. Maybe your site has that information! I am sure it will steer me in the right direction to research the question.

Again, my congratulations and admiration for uboat.net.

As a ex British submariner I found this web site wonderful to read and navigate, I only wish there was something about British boats on the net. Thanks to all who made this great site.

I wish to forward my congratulations on your amazing web site. Having served on Oberon class submarines in the Royal Australian Navy (First Australian Submarine Squadron, 1980-1984, 1985-1989), I am very impressed with the ease of which I can gain information on U Boat history from your site. You and your crew are to be commended on the structure, layout and information made available not only to people that have served in submarines but also to people that have an interest in the life of submariners and submarines throughout the world. I visit your site at every available opportunity and hope that you will keep up the excellent work.
