I've no particular dispute with the concept that German Pzkpfw 1's in Spain were finished in the 1930's three-tone scheme, but I've never been able to reconcile this with the fact that German (but not Italian) AFV's were referred to as 'negrillos' (usually taken to mean 'black ones'). I've always presumed this was a reference to a dark grey colour scheme. Any thoughts ?
The germans didn't wore black uniforms in Spain. Initially his mission was secret, so they didn't wore uniform, only a "mono", blue or kaki, and a civilian black beret. "Negrillo" in argot usually means covered, allegal, illegal, or irregular.
