I looked for a link on Trove about Cricket matches played by people with wooden legs.
Re Dutchy's new buckle find.
Apart from a couple of references to the Ugly team playing the Handsome team i couldn't find it except the bottom of page 5.
This short booklet has a lot of funny stuff in it. I like the reference about having to shoot the ball out of the tree.

Thanks for sharing as there are some funny ones in there. Blind cricket players with bells on the ball!?  I tend to think the buckle I found was made just to be funny. No leg guards required due to the person having 2 wooden legs (non PC 19th century humour). Reminds me of the story of a Confederate general with a wooden leg. At a battle he was shot in that wooden leg. His aide said general are you Ok?  The general said I'm fine and you can see I'm better equipped for fighting than you.
