A Mexico World Cup 1986 lighter was found on Balnakeil Beach. Such a find carries some very interesting information. First, the lighter is still in tact and showing very little signs of degradation 32 years after being manufactured. Proving that plastic takes a very long time to degrade. Secondly, VM stands for ‘Verdens Mesterskab’ or World Championships in Danish, so this lighter has travelled to our shores from Denmark.
I wonder what adventures it got up to on the way?
