In New Zealand Geoff Flood was walking along a beach when he found a bottle containing a note. He told local media, “As I picked it up and started looking, I could see it was an old envelope with P&O on it and I thought this might be something special. There was a bit of mad panic to carefully extract it. I carefully cut a couple of bits of wire and quietly wound it up with the bits of wire so we didn’t damage it. [I thought] Who knows where it’s been. How many times around the world, you just wouldn’t know, would you?”
