"John Simpson Kirkpatrick" was written by Paul McGee, Neil McCann and John Littrich of Dogmatic Music as a tribute to the ANZAC soldiers of World War One, and, in particular, the subject of the song, John Simpson Kirkpatrick, better known as "Simpson" or "the man with the donkey". This song was inspired by the story of Charlie Werner, a relative of John's wife, Jane. Charlie Werner was recorded to be the last man carried upon Simpson's donkey across the rocky slopes of Gallipoli before Simpson was tragically killed. This song is a tribute to not only the heroism of John Simpson Kirkpatrick, but to all soldiers who have paid the ultimate price fighting for their country. This song was top 10 in the Australia category in the 2014 ASA competition and appears on the Anzac Day Kit along with "Lest We Forget" and "Australia Remembers" (both top 10 ASA Competition songs in 2010) and "Mother's Arms". These songs and the kit form educational resource for schools and also great for use in ANZAC Day and Remembrance Day Ceremonies. Lest We Forget.
