Truly a benighted roll of film

Just finished a roll of HP5 – in its third camera. Started the roll in a Nikon FE, but the electronics crapped out and the shutter stopped working, so switched to a Nikkormat FT3 – battery died so no light meter, but now the battery cap was stuck. Finished in a Canon FE. The shooting went smoothly, but at the end of the roll, the film came off its canister. I had to find a dark place to take the film out, roll it up and put in a film can – I hope these things are light tight and there’s little damage done to the exposures.
