In the midst of battle, a soldier leads a wounded comrade to safety, gently seated on a donkey’s back. The perfect symbol of mateship, this touching figurine is the ultimate tribute to the Gallipoli campaign’s ill-fated – but significant – chapter in Australian history.

Hardier and more sure-footed than horses, donkeys were regularly used during WWI. They could carry substantial loads, and were often used to help transport wounded troops to safety. Some stretcher-bearers, like John Simpson Kirkpatrick, gained folkloric status for their partnerships with these hardy beasts. Countless lives were saved in the process.

Standing 240mm high, this cold cast bronze figurine is set on a prestigious timber base. The ultimate final flourish, a vial of authentic Gallipoli sand is set within the name plaque!
