John "Jack"Simpson Kirkpatrick (6 July 1892 - 19 May 1915),
who served under the name 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, who he called "Murphy" 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, until he was killed,
during the Third attack on Anzac Cove.
Simpson and his Donkey are a part of the "Anzac legend".
