Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : April 22nd 2009
A-6 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, April 23, 2009 MW March led by an honest vintage SHIREEN KHALIL David Colton with his Humber Pullman Cabriolet. Inset: Mayor Lesley Furneaux-Cook in the Humber in Sunday's Anzac Day march down Burwood Rd. AVINTAGE vehicle used by the Queen on her 1954 tour of Australia led Burwood's 50th annual Anzac parade on Sunday. Burwood Mayor Lesley Furneaux-Cook accompanied the traditional march down Burwood Rd in the same Humber Pullman Cabriolet that was built for King George VI in 1948. Burwood Heights resident David Colton has owned the stylish black Humber for 10 years and said the best feature about the three-tonne car is its history. ''The fact that it was built for the King and used by his daughter Queen Elizabeth II during her 1954 tour of Australia and was the official car for the 1956 Olympic Games in Melbourne, are all interesting points about the vehicle,'' Mr Colton said. Mr Colton, who owns four other Humbers and has a Humber bicycle collection, said he only brought the car out for important events. ''I bring it out for worthwhile causes. It is a fragile car and a lot of it is aluminium and it's starting to get stress fractures -- it's a good old honest car that needs to be looked after,'' he said. It's no surprise that Mr Colton is the chairman of the Humber Car Club of Australia, and he said his love for the vehicles is a result of his childhood. ''My parents had a Humber and most people are attracted to vehicles they grew up with,'' Mr Colton said. ''I have an interest in the marque, particularly of its wartime record, which is what made the car relevant to this march -- (Humber) was a big provider of military equipment and all the big chiefs drove around in (them) during the wars.'' Mr Colton, who saved the Humber, built by H.J. Mulliner, from being sold overseas, said it took a lot of negotiating to get the price of the car down. ''It's a heritage-listed car and it couldn't leave Australia anyway -- but I had to do a lot of negotiating with the men I bought it from to get the price I could afford,'' Mr Colton said. The vintage car also drove the president of the Kokoda Track Memorial Walkway, Rusty Priest, who was a guest speaker at the Anzac service. ANZAC DAY 2009 Kapyong battle never forgotten VETERANS of the Korean War were honoured at the annual Battle of Kapyong Service at Concord Hospital on Saturday. Drummoyne State Labor MP Angela D'Amore and the minister assisting the Premier on Veterans Affairs, Graham West, laid wreaths in the 113th Army General Hospital Memorial Chapel. The service commemorates the 58th anniversary of the Battle of Kapyong, which occurred 10 months into the Korean War on April 23 and 24, 1951. Australians, as part of the United Nations forces, supported South Korean troops in stalling the Chinese army, who were trying to retake the capital city, Seoul. Ms D'Amore said that 340 Australian servicemen were killed in the Korean campaign A further 18 servicemen died during the years that followed, with Australians continuing to serve on the Korean peninsula through until 1957. ''The Battle of Kapyong was the most significant engagement for Australian troops during the Korean War,'' Ms D'Amore said. ''These young Australians, many of whom made the ultimate sacrifice, have helped preserve our peace and freedom. ''In the lead-up to Anzac Day on April 25, it is important to remember the sacrifices made by those who served our country.'' Mr West said the Battle of Kapyong was an important stage of the Korean War. ''The courage and heroism of Australians who fought that day have often been recounted,'' he said. ''The sacrifice involved in defence force service is well known to many NSW families. ''The Korean War is an important legacy of Australia's proud military history that has shaped the peace and safety we all enjoy today.''
