The true story of an ANZAC surgeon and his little mate.
Deb Benson’s great-grandfather, Joseph Lievesley Beeston was a surgeon and Lieutenant Colonel in the A.I.F. He spent five months on Gallipoli from April 1915 during the Allied offensive against the Turks in the First World War.
This story, adapted from his diary, is an insight to the character of this ANZAC hero, of his love for his family and his little dog, Paddy, whom he took to Gallipoli, how he operated under appalling conditions and cared for thousands of wounded soldiers.
