On the 25th April one hundred years ago, the Australian and New Zealand troops landed on Gallipoli Beach, ready to have war against the Turks. Private Simpson and the Australian Red Cross landed on the beach prepared to aid people that needed medical care.

Private Simpson put a Red Cross on Murphy’s nose and one on his arm to show the Turks that they wouldn’t fight. He then proved himself an Anzac of outstanding courage. Private Simpson was always in a deadly gully that as under heavy fire from the Turks.

On the final day Murphy came back to the Mess tent alone with a soldier on his back.  It was finally over for Simpson.
