100-year-old message in a bottle found in Scotland

A Scottish fisherman caught a 100-year-old message in a bottle in his nets.

Labeled as drift bottle 646B, the record-breaking bottle contained a postcard asking the finder to write down the date and location of the discovery and return it to the “Director of the Fishery Board for Scotland.” The postcard promised a reward of six pence.

The water-tight glass bottle was released on June 10, 1914 by Captain C H Brown of the Glasgow School of Navigation.
