Memory can be bad but am 100% certain that we called it 'indelible'.  =
Apologies if necessary, but I had intended to help - and I haven't =
imagined what happened in that office, it is fixed indelibly in my =
mind..=20
=20
A friend has told me that it should have been called copying ink, but we =
called it indelible, possibly because of the permancy from the =
iron-gall(?).  Use stopped during the thirties but the pencils were =
still in stock, and in use, after WW2.
=20
I believe also that the same ink was used when the jelly copies were =
made, but I was never involved with those.
=20
To 'help' further: when using the pencil, it was common practice to lick =
the 'lead' to gain a more legible image . . .  and finish up with a =
purple stain on our tongues; presumably, some of the indelible(?) dye(?) =
 had been incorporated with the 'lead'.=20
=20
Other than the word 'indelible' it was very much as Ms Dubansky =
describes so well; I haven't seen one of those pencils for a long, long =
time.
=20
By the way, I recall credits being 'boxed' - maybe we didn't have =
'indelible red' pencils then.
