Was hoping to join on line to pay my respects. Sue, my thoughts are with you and your family please accept my condolences. May David rest in peace.


Such a beautiful Godly man. Praying for Sue and family at such a hard time. Thank God for our sure hope in Jesus.


David was a wonderful neighbour and friend. I remember chuckling the day I collected his mail for him, and realised his name was Lancelot. Rest in peace.


A wonderful man and a good friend.

Singleton charges dismissed

SYDNEY: Three charges of assaulting policemen against former advertising executive and television personality Mr John Singleton, were dismissed in the Central Court yesterday.

Mr Brown, SM, found that insufficient evidence was offered by police to establish a case.

Mr Singleton, 38, of Darling Point, pleaded not guilty to assaulting Constable Bryan Holborow, of the licensed dealers squad, assaulting him in the execution of his duty, and assaulting Constable Lancelot David Hines, of the licensed dealers squad, in the execution of his duty.

The charges arose from an incident at Kings Cross on March 1.

‘Tried to bribe detective’

SYDNEY, Wednesday. — A man charged with illegally possessing a car was charged also with offering a bribe to a detective, Blacktown Court was told today.

Before the court was Mr Albert Jeffrey Woods, 23, of Doonside. He is charged with the bribe offence and illegally possessing a GTR Holden Torana.

Also before the court was Mr Woods’ brother, James, 24, of the same address, who was charged with illegally possessing car grills. Both men are labourers.

Police prosecutor Sergeant Kingsley Weller told the court that “far more serious charges” would be made against the brothers.

The alleged offences took place at Doonside yesterday, Sergeant Weller told Mr A. J. McKeowen, SM.

The alleged bribe had been made to Detective L. D. Hines of Blacktown Police.

Pleas were not taken.

Sergeant Weller said additional investigations were being carried out “in relation to several car matters”.

Both were allowed $300 bail and were remanded to appear at the same court on September 6.
