It is apparently a mis-spelling of the j aboriginal' Geelgandcrra.' which meant in the Kamilroi dialect a youth who had gone through the third 'bora' cere mony and fought in his first battle. It must be remembered that a word in one dialect may have quite a different meaning in another. It comes very -•: >r to ' Gilgandra."
