Two men with message in a bottle
Jack Conway, left, of Atlanta Georgia was visiting his friend Joe Shettlesworth, right, of 1308 1st Street Jacksonville Beach, Florida when the two decided on a swim just before dark. The evening of September 29th. "Twas in this manner that they came across the barnicle-covered half gallon jug (tightly sealed) containing a note inside. They thinking it might be something of importance called Photographer-reporter Deane before breaking the bottle. The note gave indication that it might have been set adrift in England on October 13th, 1943 as it was signed by "Thomas H."

"Pictured above is a photo copy of the reverse side of this note found in the Jacksonville Beach Bottle."
