+ - World record as message in bottle found after 98 years near Shetland->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "'The drift bottle — containing a postcard which promised a reward of six pence to the finder — was released in June 1914 by Captain CH Brown of the Glasgow School of Navigation.

It was in a batch of 1,890 scientific research bottles which were specially designed to sink to help map the currents of the seas around Scotland when they were returned. Only 315 of them have been found.'"
