Donkey Who Carried the Wounded/French, Jackie/Paper/0732288398/S036-F
Angus & Robertson
Most Australians know of Simpson and his donkeyé who became heroes at Gallipolié even among the Turkish forces. Few know where the donkey came fromé or what happened to him after World War I. Or that another man carried on rescuing the wounded with the donkey after Simpson died.
This is the story of a small unassuming donkey. It's also the story of Gallipolié of Jack Simpsoné and New Zealander stretcher-bearer Richard Hendersoné who literally took up the reins after Simpson's death. Exhaustively researchedé it gives a new depth to our understanding of this story of Anzac heroism.
