John "Jack" Simpson Kirkpatrick
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 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.
He would sing and whistle, seeming to ignore the bullets flying through the air, while he tended to his comrades.
The donkey is usually remembered as being called 'Duffy', although it has also been known as 'Abdul' or 'Murphy'.
On 19 May 1915, during the Third attack on Anzac Cove, Simpson was struck by machine gun fire and died. At the time of his death, Simpson's father was already dead, but his mother and sister Annie were still living in South Shields. He was buried at the Beach Cemetery.
Simpson and his Donkey are a part of the "Anzac Legend".
