That ad makes me profoundly sad.  The reference to active service combined with the calendar pages concluding in 1918 with "...so on for a lifetime" gives an uncomfortable suggestion that a lifetime is best measured in weeks, and probably not too far into double digits.

 

There's a dark thought for a cheery thread...   :(

Thank you Ernst for pointing that aspect out to me...I have therefore removed the post.

Huge sized pen, huge nib, grand(e) model, big old pen, very large nib. I think he believes it's a big pen :lticaptd:

Stringing us along indeed.  I don't understand the string in the picture, or any of it. :lticaptd:
