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".

WW1: Australian soldiers visit one of the Egyptian pyramids. This photographer succeeded in including so many in the frame -- he stood quite away from the scene and must have used whatever passed as a camera wide angle lens in those days. No barrel distortion though.
