Research notes

"Yadra - making a spear. Boy who met Mr Gribble when he first went up - in Wyndham. Though baptized, is a regular lawbreaker - at present is sent off mission ("sent bush") - generally involved in spearing cattle cases. Useful for bringing in bush boys, but not trustworthy" [catalogue card note].
