Hello, my name is Roly.  During the First World War, I worked at Gallipoli, where I met a man who was very special.  He and I worked as a team to help rescue soldiers who had been hurt in battle.

 

This is the heartwarming story of Richard Alexander Henderson, a real-life soldier in the New Zealand Medical Corps, and the donkey he discovers wandering and hungry on a Gallipoli track.  Richard and Roly  form a strong friendship and together save the lives of many wounded soldiers.  But when the army receives orders to leave Gallipoli, all the donkeys must be left behind.  Richard is heartbroken.  What will become of his dear friend Roly?
