If someone else is doing the developing, take it to them (assuming local). Most minilabs I know of have a changing bag and can sort this out for you.

Actually, probably the best advice ever.

IT might just happen
Something like: boil water for 3 minutes, mix baby milk, stir for 2 minutes, ready to give it to baby .... PS: let it cool down first before baby drinks .....

If the film end is shattered brush out shards from camera focal plane shutters don't like shards...

I'm probably going to do this. My local lab is a good one, and I'm pretty sure they'll do it right. I'll let you know how it turns out Unfortunately, they only run B&W on Tuesdays, so I won't know until next week how it turns out.

The lab took care of it for me. Thanks for all the help!
It was a roll of Forte B&W. First roll I've tried of it. Expired a few yrs ago. I'll only be shooting around 34 with the rest of the rolls.
It was more than 20 years ago Noel, I had a changing bag but no black plastic cassette container to put the film in with me it was Fuji film and theirs are transparent,, I had two bodys with me at the time, and had to finished the wedding with the other one.
