This Coca-Cola Bottle Stands Proudly: A true Survivor

IF THIS BOTTLE COULD SPEAK, THEN ITS TALE WILL BE OF SURVIVAL AND STRENGTH OF SPIRIT

During World War II, Coca-Cola was bottled by the USA Army for its troops at the battlefront in collapsible dixie lines set up in Leyte. After the war, San Miguel Brewery resumed bottling operatins in Cebu to provide refreshment for Filipinos rebuilding our war-torn country. Botles like this one were shipped from the dixie lines in Leyte to the Cebu Royal Plant for filling.

In 1947, a barge transporting a shipment of 80,000 bottles including this one sank off Bantayan Island in Cebu, plunging its precious cargo into the ocean-to-be found 54 years later by fisher folk.
Like CCBPI, this Coca-Cola bottle stands proudly, A true survivor of the challenges of Time.
