Private Simpson, D.C.M., & his donkey at Anzac, depicting a medic and his donkey helping an injured man back to base at Gallipoli. Despite the title, this was actually based on a photo of the medic Lt. Richard Henderson (1895-1958), who took up the role after Simpson was killed.[1] Printed in England and published by W. J. Bryce, 24a Regent Street, London, S.W. 1. 1918.

This is a faithful photographic reproduction of a two-dimensional, public domain work of art. The work of art itself is in the public domain for the following reason:

Public domain

The author died in 1922, so this work is in the public domain in its country of origin and other countries and areas where the copyright term is the author's life plus 95 years or fewer.

This work is in the public domain in the United States because it was published (or registered with the U.S. Copyright Office) before January 1, 1927.

The official position taken by the Wikimedia Foundation is that "faithful reproductions of two-dimensional public domain works of art are public domain".
This photographic reproduction is therefore also considered to be in the public domain in the United States. In other jurisdictions, re-use of this content may be restricted; see Reuse of PD-Art photographs for details.
