Taylor, Buck (II). Buck Taylor (II) appeared in a number of stories in The Rover beginning with “The Mountie With the Invisible Boomerang” (The Rover, Apr. 6, 1940).

Buck Taylor (II) is a member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. He is originally from Australia, and when he left Australia for Canada he was given a special boomerang as a going-away present. The boomerang is made of transparent quartz and only becomes visible when the light shines on it at certain angles. Because of his seemingly invisible weapon, the stunned Canadian outlaws dub Taylor “the No-Gun Terror.”
