The submarine was sunk by a British patrol boat after it was caught on the surface of the water on April 30 1918. However, its German crew surprised the British forces by surrendering without resistance.

According to an old sea tale, the ship’s commander Captain Krech later revealed that they had been on the surface of the water while they recharged their batteries at night when a “strange beast” rose out of the deep.

He is believed to have described a monster with “large eyes, set in a **** sort of skull”, adding: “It had a small head, but with teeth that could be seen glistening in the moonlight.

“Every man on watch began firing a sidearm at the beast”, he said, but in the battle the submarine had been so damaged that it could no longer submerge beneath the water.

“That is why you were able to catch us on the surface,” the captain is said to have told the British.
