The ability to explore Gallipoli geographically in 3D, linking with timeline and stories, video, images from the ANZAC campaign of 1915 is a pretty amazing use of online mapping and content organization software.. www.abc.net.au/innovation/gallipoli/gallipoli2.htm
Gallipoli battlefield cemetery statue of an Ottoman soldier carrying a wounded ANZAC soldier "As the cries of the wounded continued and the hot sun rose, the Anzacs were moved to pity. They had never seen such bravery before. A truce was arranged and Anzacs and Turks together helped to bury the dead." --A.K. Macdougall, Australia in History: Gallipoli and the Middle East, 1915-18, 2004

Stretcher bearers carrying wounded at Anzac The image on this panel shows two stretcher-bearers. Undoubtedly, the most famous medic on Anzac was the ‘man with the donkey’, Private John Simpson Kirkpatrick, 3rd Field Ambulance. However, it was decided not to feature Simpson, whose story is so well known, but rather that unsung legion of other bearers whose work right throughout the campaign undoubtedly saved many lives. They lived with death, dined with disease. Anonymous Poem Gallipoli
John "Jack" Simpson Kirkpatrick (6 July 1892 – 19 May 1915), who served under the name John Simpson, was a stretcher bearer with the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) during the Gallipoli Campaign in World War I. After landing at Anzac Cove on 25 April 1915, he obtained a donkey and began carrying wounded British Empire soldiers from the frontline to the beach, for evacuation.
Anzac Day is a national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand, originally commemorated by both countries on 25 April every year to honour the members of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who fought at Gallipoli in the Ottoman Empire during World War I.
The ANZACs in this photo are brothers Harold (left) and Arthur Bartleet. The photo was taken outside of their dugout on Gallipoli on Arthur’s 21st Birthday on the 20th of November 1915. Both brothers survived the war.
