What is John Simpson Kirkpatrick remembered for?

Private John Simpson Kirkpatrick (1892-1915) was an Australian medic in World War 1. He carried wounded soldiers on the back of a donkey to safety. John walked through shrapnel fires and survived many times but he was unlucky to die while performing a rescue during a battle. Kirkpatrick was actually a deserter from an earlier stint in the British merchant marine, who volunteered as "John Simpson" to be a stretcher bearer in the war. He was an ANZAC medic in the Gallipoli Campaign of the first World War.

What animal was made famous by Private John Simpson?

The donkey. John Simpson Kirkpatrick and his donkey are remembered as ANZAC legends, and heroes. Simpson took one (and later more) of the donkeys that had been landed with the ANZAC troops at Gallipoli and, instead of just using them as water-carriers, used the donkeys to carry wounded men through the treacherous Shrapnel Gully at Gallipoli to where they would be treated and evacuated from the beaches. Simpson himself was killed just three weeks after he took on the work of cheerfully carrying wounded soldiers back through the gunfire. The donkey continued on with another wounded man on his back, carrying him to safety.

Why is Private John Simpson so well remembered?

John Simpson Kirkpatrick and his donkey are remembered as ANZAC legends, and heroes. John Simpson aka John Simpson Kirkpatrick was a stretcher-bearer with the original ANZAC troops who landed at Anzac Cove in Gallipoli on 25 April 1915. Simpson took one (and later more) of the donkeys that had been landed with the ANZAC troops at Gallipoli and, instead of just using them as water-carriers, used the donkeys to carry wounded men through the treacherous Shrapnel Gully at Gallipoli to where they would be treated and evacuated from the beaches. On the morning of 19 May 1915, following a night of vicious fighting after the arrival of Turkish reinforcements, he was killed by Turkish machine gun fire near Steele's Post as he was returning down Monash Valley with two wounded men. One man was shot with Simpson, but the man on the donkey's back remained. The donkey continued on the well-worn track, obediently carrying the wounded man to where he would be tended. For this reason, Simpson is remembered as a hero.
