JJ-GLA-16B - ANZAC Casualities

JJ-GLA-01 - Simpson And His Donkey



John "Jack" Simpson Kirkpatrick (6 July 1892 - 19 May 1915), who served under the name John Simpson, was a stretcher bearer with the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) during the Gallipoli Campaign in World War I. After landing at Anzac Cove on 25 April 1915, he obtained a donkey, who he called "Murphy" and began carrying wounded British Empire soldiers from the front line to the beach, for evacuation.

He continued this work for three and a half weeks, often under fire, until he was killed, during the Third attack on Anzac Cove.

Simpson and his Donkey are a part of the "Anzac legend".
