Anzac Day Art

Laken Whitecliffe paints Simpson and His Donkey a mural to commemorate ANZAC Day for the East Coast Bays RSA Club. John Simpson, was a stretcher bearer with the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) during the Gallipoli Campaign in World War 1. After landing at Anzac Cove on 25 April 1915, he obtained a donkey and began carrying wounded British Empire soldiers from the front line to the beach, for evacuation. He continued this work for three and a half weeks, often under fire, until he was killed.
