A visit to Gallipoli, where 15,000 Indians fought and 1,400 died. Sadly, there is no memorial here to honour them
The inscription states:
Private Simpson and his donkey worked day and night
carrying water to frontline and bringing the
wounded back to the Dressing Station.
They were both killed by a shrapnel on 19.5.15.
Pvt Simpson was Mentioned-in-Despatches by
Sir Ian Hamilton , C-in-C of Mediterranean Expeditionary Force
