Are you Brian or Barbara?!

Posted on 16/07/2014 by Phillip Island Nature Parks

UPDATE 18 July 2014: We may have found an owner of the ring! We’ve had a few people come forward thinking they may know the ring’s origins, but the best lead we have so far is that the ring may have initially been lost in Zimbabwe by the original owners and was subsequently found by a neighbour in the 1990s. Brian and Barbara could not be tracked down and it’s possible they had long since emigrated to the UK or South Africa. The ring was later passed on to someone from Australia and then lost here. We’re trying to verify all details and still searching for Brian and Barbara! For anyone who missed orginal story: a ring was found in front of penguin burrow this week. Inscription: "Brian and Barbara Forever" and a date from 1965  #brianandbarbaraforever
