For many years this photograph was thought to be of 202 Private John Simpson Kirkpatrick, who enlisted as John Simpson, at Anzac, "The Man with the Donkey", and was at first accepted as such. 

It was later found that this photograph was taken by 3/210 Sergeant James (Jas) G. Jackson, New Zealand Expeditionary Force, and shows not Simpson but Lieutenant Richard Alexander (Dick) Henderson. 

The photograph was subsequently copied by Sapper H. Moore-Jones and reproductions of his picture were widely distributed as being an excellent portrait of Simpson.
