Many UK Duofold materials exclusive to Newhaven in WWII period
Posted by Len Provisor on August 1, 2017, 7:08 pm, in reply to "Parker Duofold Juniorette UK Green and Black Herringbone c1941-1944"
Parker Newhaven was also contracted by the government to produce war materials. Inventory was being sent to UK by Parker Canada. Parker was buying acrylic material literally "wherever they could find it" as a result some fountain pens were made of materials in very short numbers.
Picture the above Duofold being manufactured at Newhaven to the tune of daily BBC lively radio broadcasts "Music while you work".
