2:10 The MC Limerick - Tim Smith
Heritage staff in Australia are looking for help today, in tracking down the relatives of a young kiwi sailor who died at sea during World War II. William Rush, from Havelock North was on board the merchant ship Limerick when it was torpedoed by a Japanese submarine off the coast of New South Wales. The ship went down, and though most of the crew were saved, William was one of two young officers who perished in the water.
Now, 70 years later, the wreck of the Limerick has been found, and Australian authorities are trying to track down anybody with a connection to William Rush. Tim Smith is from New South Wales Department of Environment and Heritage in Parramatta.

Sky City getting the go-ahead for its mammoth national convention centre, the rising level of debt being incurred by our local councils, the myth of high-fibre foods being weight-reducing, the vituperation over George Wood taking a photo as he crossed the Auckland Harbour Bridge, our Lotto spending, our loyalty schemes and Blackie, R.I.
