I WILL one day get to witness an ANZAC ceremony at Gallipoli.         **They went with songs to the battle, they were young. Straight of limb, true of eyes, steady and aglow.      They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted,      They fell with their faces to the foe.        They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:      Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.      At the going down of the sun and in the morning,      We will remember them.

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".
