Message In A Bottle

Captain J.H. Tucker found this note inside a bottle floating in the St. Johns River on May 25, 1943. Because the bottle was a suspicious object, Navy intelligence personnel conducted an investigation. It is unclear how a note from a ship sunk by a Japanese submarine made it to the Atlantic.
