I stumbled upon fountain pen network website quite by chance when searching for Vere Foster longhand writing on Google. That was the system taught us in primary school way back in the 1950s and 1960s.

Over the years and after a military career one's handwriting has degraded to the extent that now even I am ashamed of it. Had I still been in school, it would have invited the cane (common in our days!)

Hopefully, some interaction with people who appreciate good pens and good writing might get me to invest time and effort in getting back to the good old longhand ...

Hello and Welcome to the forum, from Mumbai India. The forum is treasure trove of information about all things fountain pen. In case you do take up the longhand again, do let us know how it goes.

Cheers!

Hello and welcome to FPN, from Cape Town, South Africa.


To sit at one's table on a sunny morning, with four clear hours of uninterruptible security, plenty of nice white paper, and a [fountain] pen - that is true happiness!

:W2FPN:  !!! It is good to have you join us. Well, your mention of the Vere Foster method of handwriting bought bacl fond memories, because I too was taught using that method when I attended St Edmund's School in Shillong, way back in the 1980s. 

BTW, where in India are you located at? I grew up in Meghalaya and Assam, lived maybe 1/2 a mile from the 58 Gorkha Training Center and the Assam Regimental Center.
