Utility, War Drawing or Chinograph? Hmmmmmm choices.

Here is a set of 1940s pencils. Made by various companies including royal sovereign, eagle pencil co, Venus pencil co and cumberland pencil company. These were supplied to the armed forces and civil service. Some had ‘utility’ stamps, or ‘war drawing’ and some ‘AM’. Lovely items with stationary office and crown logo, and air ministry and crown logo. My air ministry examples came courtesy of David Farnsworth at http://www.historicflyingclothing.com
