The monument commemorates John Hamp, a shepherd on Pinkerton’s run, part of Mount Wedge Station. He was allegedly speared by two Aboriginal individuals, Malgalta and Mingalta, who, although initially brought to trial and sentenced to death, were subsequently acquitted as their guilt had not been adequately established.
