Hello all. I'm guessing there are many 'found this pen and want to know more about it' messages to this forum. Shamelessly, mine is another!

This is a ballpoint pen, given by my great-grandfather to my grandmother in 1947. I have posted pics at

It's got a black-painted metal body with brass clip, and is called a 'Bell' pen, made by C.B.projections (Engineering Ltd) Cranleigh, Surrey, just post-war. The link shows all the documentation wrapped around the pen. The pen stilll works!

I have 'googled' everything I can think of to find any references to the manufacturer or pen but drawn a blank- suggesting to me (perhaps naively) that there may not be many around.

Grateful for any light that anyone can shine on the pen or its heritage.
