@bananaman

Lazlo Biro invented it in 1938 and tried to get a patent that year.

He was successfully granted a patented in June 1943- in Argentina (!) - after he and brother emigrated there.

The British Govt licensed it, and the RAF were using the pens during WW2

Maybe she was nipping out of the attic, getting a Lysander to England, going on a night raid over Germany and then being flown back to the Netherlands in time to write the days account with a wondrous new pen.

As Sir Les - a true gent - would say 'Are you with me?

"My ambition is to follow in the footsteps of Henry Kissinger and become an agent for global harmony." - Sir Leslie Colin Patterson, KBC

Australian Rhyming slang "Septic Tank" Yank shortemed from Yankee, Septic tank is then shortened to Seppo as with names we add a vowel, eg Deano, Gazza, Ricki, etc, no offence :)

Apparently it wasn't invented until 48 or something, but her diary was written in ball point pen. I suspect the technology was stolen in the early 40's, her father probably got a prototype before being sent to the camps, hats my story and i'm sticking to it coz i don't want the fucking feds knocking on the door
