Found a football off of Southsea, brought it home and the kids thought it came all the way from Italy as it had "made in Italy" stamped on it.

Anyone found Olly's Oakleys?

This from a Cornishman where tradition dictates that you dont tell the receiver of your find and that in fact you spend most of your time trying to encourage wrecks

Actually that "bugger" is a very nice young lady, who spends most of her time trying to return lost property (flotsam) to its owners, or to the person who had to chuck it over the side to save the ship (jetsom).

Also rewards are often paid to finders of items.

Dunno, you better ask Olly. There's a cool looking fish in the Solent, I guess. Perhaps we could train Spinner-Spinnaker of whatever the Dolphins name is to look for them, must be worth a Trout or three.

Made good use of that comment

To repeat :
  • One Bamboo Cane
  • One football
  • One rubber ducky
  • And a couple of tesco bags which caused a little grief
  • Oh and a few lobster pot ropes also

Footballs seem to be the most popular item. By the time they finish drifting across the atlantic to the british shores, the poor buggers are bleached right out and so bloated that they're completely round.
