Message in a Bottle

Many, many years ago, my oldest brother found a message in a bottle on our annual holiday at South Mission Beach.   Yes!  Really!  I was so jealous for years... I really wanted to find a genie in a bottle when I was a kid, but the next best thing would have been finding your 'typical' message in a bottle.

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 ...
