    I've just been looking through my copy of "Midget Submarines of the Second World War" by Paul Kemp (Nice drawings throughout BTW). Always tricky for subs like this because:

    - Colour photos very rare.

    - One guy with a paint pot can change everything!

    The B & W photos in this book give no great  guide although one photo shows a spotted (spots about the size of  a hand) camouflage with the comment:

    "Leutnant Ulrich Muller ...... has given his conning tower some spotted camouflage."

    So it is one chap with his paint pot again.

    The best advice is do as much research as you can and after that "Who's to know!"
