jedihirsch: Don't understand how a U-Boat could be sunk off of England in 1921, the last U-Boats in WW1 sailed in 1919 when they went to be interned in Scotland, until the 1930's the Germans did not have any. Something is off with the dates


Not necessarily.  After both world wars, the Allies played around with captured toys for years afterwards.  The USN did experiments with U-1105 until September of 1949, then scuttled her.
