Men lost from U-boats
Unlike many other U-boats, which during their service lost men due to accidents and various other causes, U-15 did not suffer any casualties (we know of) until the time of her loss.
There was another U-15 in World War One
That boat was launched from its shipyard on 18 Sep, 1911 and commissioned into the Imperial Navy on 7 Jul, 1912. The Naval war in WWI was brought to an end with the Armistice signed on 11 Nov, 1918.
