    i donno...
    from what I understand, an M1 Garand packs quite a punch...

    although, a "51" is the appropriate pen to accept German Surrender...

    Today is the anniversary of D-Day.
    Likely the most important single day in the last 100+ years.
    To my earlier post (Fortress Europe Invasion Kit) I add this:
    A picture of my recently acquired (and restored) 1941 Parker Vacumatic Jr Double Jewel in Silver Pearl
    The pen and pencil and engraved with the same name (David Russell), and it matches the initials on the pen case
    The leather zip up folio was included with the sale and is believed to have belonged to the same RCAF member
    The paper is a replica of an Airgraph (the UK/Commonwealth version of American V-Mail)

    more replicated advertising ("51" advertising from the 40s and 50's is just great stuff!)

    I have no doubt that she would happily take top three the darker blue ones, especially the safari, she likes her safaris
    (basically it's safaris, kaweco sports and Twsbi Ecos for her)

    Come to think of it, she'd probably like the green one too

    Well, in that case, she can't have it.
    'cause i need it

    (also, she doesn't like "51"s so she wouldn't even want it)
