Mark Ring, Captain of the lobster boat the Stanley Thomas recovered this wallet and naval ID about a mile and a half south of Kettle Island in 150 feet of water after Hurricane Nole last fall.
If anyone knows this person or their family he would like to return it to the guy or his family. He was born in 1910. The date of issue on the ID was 1953, I’m surprised it held up so well under water.
Mark supposed that it was buried under the mud for a while and was stirred up by the storm. That is how it has been preserved.
To see the ID and wallet up close click the picture and then click “all sizes” above the picture once you get to the Flickr page. Its quite interesting to see the picture up close.
