It was from a girl called Halinka who was from a Scandanavian country. Just a small plastic white tube with the 'Shell' emblem on both ends. My mother assumed there would have been hundereds of them dropped of a Shell tanker sometime back in the late 1960's and it was organized by the Red Cross from memory.
My brother wrote to Halinka - I think they were about the same age, but we never did get a reply. What a shame - would have been an amazing story.
note to self... find out Halinka's full name and edit this post ... just in case she's reads this one day ...
