Photo: HELEN MURDOCH By HELEN MURDOCH Tim Flintoff doesn't like unfinished business. The philosophy saw him twice head to the Korean Peninsula to help the South Koreans try to stem the push of North Korean and Chinese forces during the Korean War. Too many memories. . .,'' he mumbled sifting through a pile of brochures, invitations, name badges and service sheets marking his recent trip to Korea to commemorate the anniversary of the 1953 signing of the armistice. I swore I would never go back . . .. But I had second thoughts after a while. One of the reasons was that I wanted to see the graves of a couple of fellas killed -- Colin Taylor and Jacky Burborough. They both knew each other well. They were killed a long way apart, but they are buried side by side.'' Tim was a driver with the New Zealand Army when the Korean War broke out. Initially deployed to the Han River, Tim drove up and down the peninsula as the fortunes of the war swung. The city of Seoul changed hands -- we had it four times and the Chinese and North Koreans had it three.'' He served on the peninsula between 1950 to 1961 -- with a break of only a few years in between. Among the memories he bought back from last month's trip are being told by an old guy just as we were leaving that I'd be back for the 70th -- I thought that was rather good of him''; being saluted while walking the streets of Seoul and a small blue card from the people of Korea acknowledging those who fought to defend a country they never knew and a people they never met''. I cried over there -- I'm not ashamed to admit it.'' I went because there was a job to do. I went back to serve again because the job was unfinished -- you don't leave a job unfinished.'' He said he had to thank the staff of The Stables, in Rich- mond, without whose assistance and encouragement he would not have made the trip.
