"We Will Miss Old Yabba" [Newspaper Article] — Army News — 15 January 1942
"We Will Miss Old 'Yabba" (By Arthur Mailey) "Yabba," who died at the Lid combe State Hospital last week, once confessed to me that he was "the greatest barracker in the world." He attributed his success to the fact that he had developed a "rab 'bito" voice. "Yabba's" real name was Stephen Harold Gascoigne. He was 64 years old.

Patsy Hendren always carried a little redl book in his pocket, in vwhich he jotted down all "Yabba's" funny `remarks. rmaurice Tate said his voice was an inspiration to bowlers. I asked that scholarly cricketer, Charle...
