German U-Boat U-995

German submarine U-995 was a German Type VIIC/41 U-boat of the Kriegsmarine. She was laid down on 25th November 1942 by Blohm & Voss in Hamburg, Germany, and commissioned on 16th September 1943 with Oberleutnant Walter Köhntopp in command.

On 8th May 1945, she was stricken at Trondheim, Norway. She was surrendered to the British and then transferred to Norwegian ownership in October 1948.

In December 1952, U-995 became the Norwegian submarine Kaura and in 1965 she was stricken by the Royal Norwegian Navy. She then was sold for the symbolic price of one Deutsche Mark to Germany where she became a museum ship at Laboe Naval Memorial in October 1971
