"The story of 'Murphy and the Donkey,' one of the hero stories of the ill-starred Gallipoli campaign, is now part of the national historical records, and 'Murphy,' whose real name was John Simpson Kirkpatrick, is grouped with the famous soldiers of his country; indeed it can be said that he is classed with the 'immortals' of the European races. // The record of his exploits, with a unique one-man ambulance service, in the Anzac Divisions' campaign against the Turks, has already become legendary - with that characteristic of legend, several versions." - page 3.
