A message in a bottle has been washed up on a beach after 76 years at sea.
The bottle was discovered in New Zealand by Geoff Flood, who managed to track down the grandson of the sender.
Geoff says he saw the bottle wedged in the sand with a note inside dated March 17, 1936. It read:
Would the finder of this bottle kindly forward this note, where found, date, to undermentioned address.
Geoff says he started looking for the sender, Herbert Ernest Hillbrick, only to discover that he had died in the 1940s. He then managed to find Herbert Hillbrick's grandson, Peter Hillbrick, who lives in Perth, Western Australia.
