Waratah - bridge deck.

The Advertiser (Adelaide) Wednesday 11 August 1909
THE WARATAH
BLUE ANCHOR VESSEL,

Besides the 300 tons of coal stowed in the bridge deck bunkers, as already reported, the Waratah took aboard at Durban 2,000 tons of bunker coal to replace that consumed on the voyage from Australia.
And so, as early as August the month after the Waratah went missing, rumours appeared as fact in print - 300 tons of coal loaded on the 'bridge deck'.
As if the spar deck was not enough........
