Most people will vaguely recall from school history books the story o f the wild white man who burst into Batman's camp on Port P hillip in 1835 with a cry of “Don ’t shoot, I ’m a British object!"

Very few will know that Buckley dictated his memoirs to John Morgan, a Vandemonian journalist, or that these were ever printed. Well, here are the memoirs, and they are fascinating.
