Noodler's Ink obtained some dated, sealed, and viable vintage area inks with extremely patriotic labels (this, to us - is a rare opportunity to examine earlier industrial history first hand!). Many referenced "V-mail", a term that seems to have begun in WW I. These were dated from 1939 to 1945 and of course began in earnest after Dec. 7th, 1941 with the patriotic WW II themes. With those inks as models and a little bit of reverse engineering and close modern replication. The originals come alive again in our own "V-mail" ink series: -North African Violet, -Operation Overlord Orange, -GI Green, -Mandalay Maroon, -Burma Road Brown, -Rabaul Red, -Midway Blue. The Army Air Corp. and some Royal Airforce planes are silhouetted on the labels.
