The world’s oldest famous summary in a bottle has been found cleared adult on a remote beach in Western Australia.
Perth proprietor Tonya Illman stumbled on a bottle half-buried on a beach nearby Wedge Island in Jan while picking adult rubbish.
The bottle’s start was traced to Germany where a array of experiments travelling 69 years saw thousands of bottles flung into a sea to improved know currents and expose some-more fit shipping routes.
This bottle had been launched from a German barque “Paula”Â in 1886.
It contained a form on that a captain had created a date, a co-ordinates and a name of a ship.
The chairman who found a bottle was afterwards asked to write where and when it was found and afterwards instructions to send it behind to a German Naval Observatory in Hamburg or a nearest German consulate.
The find has been real by a Western Australian Museum and by comparing a scratch on a note with a ship’s meteorological journal, that showed a compare with a Paula’s captain.
