Product Description

Noodler's Ink V-mail Series - Mandalay Maroon
Noodler's V-mail Series inks are modeled after vintage fountain pen inks dating from 1939 to 1945. Since this was the time period of World War II, silhouettes of Army Air Corp. and Royal Airforce planes were chosen for the labels. The Noodler's V-mail ink series includes: North African Violet, Operation Overlord Orange, GI Green, Mandalay Maroon, Burma Road Brown, Rabaul Red and Midway Blue. Noodler's Ink is safe for just about any fountain pen and is 100% made in the USA. 3 oz bottle.

According to the Smithsonian National Postal Museum website, "V, or Victory mail, was a valuable tool for the military during World War II. The process, which originated in England, was the microfilming of specially designed letter sheets. Instead of using valuable cargo space to ship whole letters overseas, microfilmed copies were sent in their stead and then "blown up" at an overseas destination before being delivered to military personnel."
