Found 27 June 1911, on the beach west of Pointgarry, North Berwick.
In a bottle, legibly written on a piece of paper:
Will the finder of this message communicate with 25 Kirkgate, Leith? The Walrus is sinking, Good-bye.
According to the Scotsman newspaper, enquiries made in Leith “failed to throw any light on the message”.
[Scotsman, 28, 29 June 1911]
