Umlaut on an iPad
Oh yes it does 😬 On an iPad if you hold down the o when you type a small box will appear and you can select the ö umlaut. I got told off for spelling pingüino wrong recently 🤓
Thanks for the information about colors. From looking at black and white photos I thought that is what is was.
As someone with an “oe” in my family name, I am well aware of the difference an umlaut makes. I also know the ship’s name has an umlaut, but this iPad does not give me the capability for an umlaut “o”.
Königsberg (not Koningsberg or Konigsberg, a cruiser with such a name never existed) was painted in the standard colours of the Reichsmarine: hull grey, superstructures light grey (both were very similar light greys). The decks had a linoleum cover, a very dark red brown.
"ö" and "o" are different letters. The alternative way to write "ö" is "oe", not "o".
