Default [BBC]Oldest message in a bottle found on Western Australia beach

[BBC]Oldest message in a bottle found on Western Australia beach
Full story:

A Perth family has found the world's oldest known message in a bottle,
almost 132 years after it was thrown into the sea, Australian experts say.

Tonya Illman picked up the bottle while going for a walk around sand
dunes on a remote beach in West Australia.

Her husband Kym Illman told the BBC they found some paper in the bottle
but had "no idea" what it was until they took it home and dried it in
the oven.

Experts have confirmed it is an authentic message from a German ship.

The note in the bottle, which was dated 12 June 1886, was jettisoned
from the German ship Paula, as part of an experiment into ocean and
shipping routes by the German Naval Observatory.
