Vera Nabaljari - I consider this to be the Vera shown on p257 of the ROW as Vera Jabaljari, Wailbri, female, born 1938. There seems to be a discrepancy in both the Register and the FOIB as far as the age is concerned. I think the woman was about 30 years of age. Perusal of the master register in Darwin might further identify this person. Her husband was Jack Jagamara aged about 50 years who resides in the Helen Springs area. Barry Jangala - aged 2 days died 27. 1.1960. Apparently Mr Brown omitted to supply a Form of Information of Birth. This is attached.
