just to start i better say i respect our soldiers , but most of the time not the wars they fight ,
with afghanistan /middle east
to start with 911 was planned buy the us gov to start a war , to sucure oil , now they have the sheep's approval ( filter'd media ) ,
most of the high people in gov have a vested intrest in the was eg bill clinton is a arms dealer , dick chanie is the ceo of helliborton ( spelling?) they provide food water ect ect to the solders, eva wonder why there president forks out millions of dollars out of his/her own pocket in the campain for a jod that will neva pay it but ?

Respect to you mate for standing up, saying you did it, and showing you understand what 'Remembrance' means.

As for Peter Pick, still gutless. He didn't say anything to you or your mate? Not even a polite 'you probably shouldn't be doing that'?

hey guys, sorry about digging up an oldish thread but i just found out that this site doesn't actually have anything do with war at all, rather it is for aboriginal remembrance and other aboriginal related issues. here's a link explaining the whole area for those interested, http://www.architectureaustralia.com/aa/aaissue.php?issueid=200209&article=16&typeon=2

At least take solace in the fact that the young lads in question taking photo's are at least showing enough respect to not damage the area. That is a rare enough thing in the 21st century.

And as it turns out. It is 'Rememberence Walk' Young lads who have done this to date have something to remember their pride and joy with. Not at all on the same level as those that have served and died for the freedoms that we all take for granted everyday.

Young lads and ladys will continue to do this. If they make it illegal... More people will do it. No point bitching and griping about it as it will continue to happen unless you guard it youself 24/7.

i'm with luke on this one.

If ANYONE of these people had ANY respect whatsoever for those fallen in battle - past and present - they would not park their cars there and go snap happy with a camera.

They have no respect for the fallen, and therefore command absolutely no repsect in any shape or form from me. Whether a datsun owner or otherwise.

Until they serve in the Defence Force and put themselves on the front line or some other form of position whether fighting or otherwise they can bugger off with their cars have learn to have some G'Damn respect. We have a free country for a reason, and these people have no problem disrespecting those that made it a free country.

I am absolutely disgusted by people that do this type of thing..not just in canberra but everywhere.

It may make a good pic but that is no reason to do what they are doing where they are doing it.

I am shamed to have to call these people my countrymen and fellow Australians.

Remember for those of you that have or are thinking of taking your cars to Rembrance Walk for happy Snaps of your cars, i am so ashamed to call you my fellow australian and have no respect from me..Regardless of your age, you should all give the Walk the G'damn respect it commands.

To be completely honest, Reading that article was the first time i realised it was a rememberance walk, theres nothing there that indicates it is, and thats why many people go down there, not realising. The thing i find funny, is peter pick, the undercover investigator, and pretending he was admiring there datsun

I think that it is good that he has had a bit of a whinge. Now all the local lads know where there is a good place to photograph their car. Then the grafitti will start.

It's just lucky that He didn't Peter Pick a Pack of Pickled Pissheads!!

Ahhh...there are the responses I was refering to, I'd say I'm disgusted but my expectations were low. I'm glad Tommy had the decency to actually state he had no idea what it was, sounds a tad remorseful to me, which I respect.

Unfortunately, to the current generation giving one's life to their country and countrymen means little. ANZAC day has little meaning to most than a day off to get pissed, and many wouldn't even know what Remembrance day was at all.

Todays society either is totally self-centred or too gutless to stand up for what they believe in.

 Re: Canberra times datsun complaint, CHECK THIS OUT!!
i think ould be a different story if they were doing skids and tagging the place... i think everyone so far has shown at least some form of respect because the place has been kept clean and free of skids/tags.

my grandfather was a pilot in WW2, my father fought in Vietnam, my cousin has been to Iraq, Afghanistan and Timor several time and i myself should be joining the Air Force this year if all goes to plan and i dont really see a problem with a few pics being taken as long as they show respect by keeping the place free of skids/tags/rubbish.

i think this artical will now has an adverse effect on the place.

i can't see any reason why it is disrespectful to park a car in there and take some photos, or are you saying taking photos in general is being disrespectful? i didn't know it was a remembrance walk either, but i'll still take my car there for a picture.

and don't worry about this article showing everyone where the spot is, they've all already got a picture there.

Wolki, is that a serious question?

Anyways, I am in the Air Force and I too have had family fight in meaningful wars, and I personally find it offensive parking a car in there for personal gratification.

This is nothing personal, just a bit of dismay from a cultural perspective. If you look at it from another point of view it gives more people reason to look down on Datto and modified car enthusiasts in general.

World War II, or do you think that was pointless? Even The Great War had meaning to it. I agree calling war meaningful may have been a poor choice of words, but the fact is both these wars served purpose.

Maybe you should read up on a bit of history if you think we just follow the US blindly. Are you suggesting Afghanistan is a mistake and we and the US are there for no reason? And before people jump on it I said AFGHANISTAN, not the Middle East.

And Hotrocket, idiot (or idio)? Yeah, your call, is that the most intelligent retort you have. Perthute is debating a legitimate point at least.

getting back on topic,

Looks like the old YAJOKN ute, going by the custom front apron that holds the intercooler. that was recently on ebay from memory.

It's a tough call if even the locals didn't know that it was a memorial, but i'm getting into the politics of it all.

As said earlier, if they didn't know it was a remeberance walk then fair enough.

There are, however, people that seem to not "understand" how it is disrespectfull or "harmfull" to others.

Its very hard to explain this concept to people that can't understand.

War memorials, like graves, are place of quite respect. Using such places for personal gain or pleasure is a show of disrespect. You must ask yourself how you might feel if "Peter Prick", for example, used a graves site of a person you care about as a prop for his personal gain or enjoyment. It degrades the consept of remembering and respecting those who we may not know, who gave so much for us to be who we are.

 Re: Canberra times datsun complaint, CHECK THIS OUT!!
one thing i find rather interesting, is each year they hold a massive music festival right at the front of this. thousands turn up, and the place gets trashed, grass destroyed, and people hang out in this tunnel. now obviously who ever organises this festival either doesnt know its a memorial, like myself, or doesnt care...

Another funny comment i read on another forum:

Pretty pathetic he couldn't note his dismay at the time. Hope he had a good pull over "dobbing on the naughty youngins".
Be some quiet friendless Public Servant in a brown cardigan who was probably hoping to come across a young couple in a lovers embrace to turn himself on and was pissed it was only boys taking pics of their car.
End rant on social outcast lol

I can already envision the response from some members but....have some respect!!! It's Remembrance Walk for a reason. In this country 'Remebrance' is not a term bandied about lightly.

My great shame with this article is Peter was a tad gutless and didn't tell certain people to pull their heads in on the spot, much truer to the 'Remembrance' spirit than bandying about taking pics on the sly and tattle-taling to the local media.
