About this memory

Only given out for Writing lessons, these fitted in a pre-drilled hole on your desk top.( See photo of Desks)
By the end of the lesson they were usually full of blotting paper!
Somehow the pupil charged with filling them always over-filled them, resulting in desk tops having large blue stains on them.
