We used chinagraph propelling pencils to draw our track lines etc on fablon covered 250,000 aviation charts - so they could be used many times over.

Problem was, many of the colours would bleed into the fablon. I found that the only colour that didn't do so was the brown "leads".

I still have box of them - twenty five years after I left the service.
