I came across this little snippet while reading about Sir John Scarlett - head of the British Secret Intelligence Service - MI6
I always thought the green ink story to be a matter of fiction developed by Ian Fleming in the James Bond books. But it seems this piece of information is true.
Reading a book recently on MI6's secret wars, it seems that Sir John Scarlett also uses a Parker fountain pen.
PS. For those of you not in the know - unlike the James Bond stories - the head of MI6 is not called "M" but "C" - the initial of the first head of the service Captain Mansfield Cummings
