    Simpson and his donkey 1915 by Peter Corlett 1988

    John Simpson Kirkpatrick enlisted in the 3rd Australian Field Ambulance as Private Simpson on August 25th 1914.
    He took part in the landing in Gallipoli in August 25th 1915 and became famous among Australians for his bravery and compassion.
    Under continual shell fire he used a donkey to carry water up Shrapnel Gully, and to bring wounded man down to the beach on Anzac Cove from the firing line on the ridges above.
    After less than four weeks in action he was fatally wounded on May 19th 1915.
    Although he was known on Gallipoli by a variety of nicknames, most of the soldiers who witness his bravery knew him as the man with the donkey, without ever learning his name.
