Two friends in the English city of Hove, Sussex, found a message in a bottle, which was sent 60 years ago from the English city of Blackpool, Lancashire, and was addressed to the Americans. This is reported by the Daily Mail.
On February 2, 21-year-old Indiana Tarrant and Luca Gamberini were looking for rocks on the beach when they saw a bottle. At first, the men thought the bottle was empty, but upon opening it, they found a letter dated August 7, 1961.
The letter said: “Dear Americans, how are you on the other side of the reservoir? I sent this email from Blackpool, UK. I suppose I should thank you for your help during the war. Roy Orbison is gaining popularity with us (American musician, pioneer of rock 'n' roll - approx. "Lenta.ru"), and everything around becomes super. I think you do too. Never been to America, but would like to wear a cowboy hat and ride a horse. Hopefully someone good gets this letter. Bobby Doseuegs and friends."
Now the British are trying to locate the person who wrote this message and threw it into the sea in the hope that it will reach the United States. They wanted to find the sender on the Internet, but have not received any results yet.
The distance between Hove and Blackpool on the ground is about 500 kilometers, and along the coast - about 800.
Earlier it was reported that a resident of the Norwegian city of Molei found a message sent 16 years ago in a bottle. The report said the couple are sailing on the Vega yacht and heading home after 10 days sailing near Unst Island in Scotland.
