It should all go to /var/log/messages each time; you can get it from

Another option is to temporarily add something like

   dmesg > /var/log/dmesg.`date +%s`

to /etc/rc.local. That will dump it to e.g. /var/log/dmesg.1227831593,
where the number is the current time from each boot. Then you can pick
the ones you want.
