A man walked with a dog and found a message in a 82-year-old bottle

A resident of the British island of Jersey discovered a bottle with a letter 82 years ago. This was reported by the Daily Mail.

55-year-old Nigel Hill walked with a dog and accidentally found a glass bottle with a message dated September 5, 1938. The note was left on a piece of cardboard packaging from under the cake.
