A group of unidentified Australian and New Zealand soldiers in a front line trench on the Gallipoli Peninsula.

Worth the long pin. We need more men with hero's hearts, and less boys with "swag".  All Americans---look to this man. Never leave a man behind. What a hero and great soldier! Thank you sir for your duty!

John "Jack" Simpson Kirkpatrick (centre of picture) who served under the name John Simpson, was a stretcher bearer with the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) during the Gallipoli Campaign. After landing at Anzac Cove on 25 April 1915, he obtained a donkey and began carrying wounded soldiers from the frontline to the beach, for evacuation. He did this for three and a half weeks, often under fire, until he was killed. Simpson and his Donkey are a key part of the "Anzac legend".
