Product Description
Jack and Billy grew up in the back lanes of Tyne Dock, where a river carried great ships out to sea. During summer holidays they led donkeys along the beach for a penny a ride. As they paced the sands of South Shields, Jack dreamt that one day he would sail away on a great adventure.
Jack Simpson Kirkpatrick landed at Gallipoli on April 25th, 1915 to serve as a stretcher-bearer. He enlisted the help of a donkey and together these unlikely heroes worked tirelessly, carrying wounded soldiers from the battlefront to the beach hospital.
This is the heroic story of one man and a donkey and a strange twist of fate that brought two boyhood friends together one last time.
