Crikey, that green is GREEN! I wonder how it presents on a sunny day! But I've never heard of "Scotch Arthurs"before - is that an authentic, contemporary nickname?

Thanks. I believe this is the SR malachite green. I would think it would be quite eye watering on a sunny day! Most historys I've seen about these refer to the two batches as 'Eastleigh Arthurs' and Scotch Arthurs'.
