Title: Nautical News: Bullock's Wanganui Barges
Author: Berthold, Martin
Abstract: The month of Jun 1998 saw demolition in progress at Wanganui of the AWA-RU, the last sand barge operated by B.Bullock & Co. Ltd., (established 1928), concluding a waterborne sand recovery operation dating from 1960. The Wanganui River-based towboat and barge operation ceased some years ago, but it is probably worthy of noting for the record, albeit briefly, the background of the curious collection of craft involved.
