John Simpson Kirkpatrick: Gallipoli hero

Allan Drummond SHOP:9781876460532

John Simpson, aka John Kirkpatrick, aka the Man with the Donkey, was a hero of the Gallipoli campaign, though he never fired a shot in anger. He was an Englishman, yet he was typical of the young Australians who set out on a great adventure in 1915... and never came back. He was a larrikin, didn't like bosses and never had a permanent job. But when the going got tough, he was the sort of bloke you would like to have beside you.

Soft cover, black & white illustrations, 94 pages.
