In August 1914 John Simpson Kirkpatrick enlisted in the Australian Imperial Force, serving at Gallipoli the following year as Private John Simpson in the 3rd Field Ambulance, Australian Army Medical Corps.
He served from the time of the landing at Gallipoli on 25 April until he was killed in action on 19 May. Simpson became famous for his work as a stretcher-bearer. Using one of the donkeys brought in for carrying water,
he transported wounded men day and night from the fighting in Monash Valley to the beach on ANZAC Cove.
This is a tastefully presented tribute to Private John Simpson including licensed images from the Australian War Museum and printed matboard outlining the remarkable Australian spirit of Simpson and his Donkey “Murphy”.
Each framed tribute also includes a licensed full replica of the ANZAC medallion, released and provided to all Gallipoli campaign survivors in 1967.
