Writing Pens 1955
About this memory
Handed out with nibs and Blotting paper for Writing lessons.
If you were lucky you got one without a crossed nib.
These were also used as a form of Catapult by screwing up small pieces of Blotting paper, dipped in the inkwell, and flicking them from the pen at pupils, walls and ceilings.
