Gallipoli peninsula, site of a World War I campaign
The grave at the Beach Cemetery of John (Jack) Simpson Kirkpatrick (6 July 1892 – 19 May 1915), who served under the name John Simpson, a stretcher bearer with the 1st Australian Division during the Gallipoli Campaign in World War I. He used donkeys to provide first aid and carry wounded soldiers to the beach, for evacuation. Simpson and the donkeys 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”.
