Simpson and his Donkey are without question symbolic of the Australian spirit at Gallipoli. Simpson was a stretcher bearer for the Australian forces and used donkeys to transport wounded soldiers in the front line during the early stages of the Gallipoli campaign during WW1. Unfortunately his bravery was met by enemy gunfire after only 3 ½ weeks at Gallipoli and he lost his life. The two images in this framed tribute are licensed by the Australian War Museum in Canberra. They are framed with a detailed plaque and a 1954 rising Sun 5th Pattern badge. A certificate of authenticity is supplied with the framed military collage.
