The Story ofCaptain Thunderbolt

Some people called him the ‘Gentleman Bushranger’, he called himself Captain Thunderbolt. On the run for more than six years, he outlasted all other counterparts and became notorious in northern New South Wales. It was a crime spree of epic proportions that saw him make off with loot from mailmen, travellers, towns, and stations. He eventually met his demise shortly after a drinking session at the Split Rock pub; after forcing the bartender to pour drinks at gunpoint, an intoxicated Thunderbolt was shot dead by police. His legend lives on in the larrikin spirit of the Lone Ranger.
