    3rd question: We think that Duffy will help because he carried people back to safty.
    2nd question: We think that Jack said bless yee little fella because he had an idea what he can do with him and after he called the donkey Duffy and they were saving people.
    1st question:he expirienced danger like death, shot and injered and he helped them insted of just living them there on the ground!

    1.) What particular dangers did the stretcher-bearers experience?

    When a strecher bearer walks across the battlefield with an injured man he risks getting hurt, getting shot and he risks death.:-(

    2.) Why did Simpson say “Bless yee little fella” when he spotted Duffy?

    Simpson said “Bless yee little fella” when he saw the donkey because he had run out of strechers, and he had been carrying the injured men on his shoulder, which hurt. 🙁

    3.) How was Duffy going to be of help?

    Duffy would help Simpson because he would be able to carry the hurt men on his back, which made it less of a load and a tiny bit of an easier travel for Jack. :-0

    The risk that the stretcher-bearers took was getting killed when saving someone else.

    He said “Bless yee little fella” when he saw Duffy because he would have too carry soldiers on his back because they ran out of stretches and now the donkey would carry the soldiers.

    He was a help by carrying the soldiers on his back.

    The dangers of being in the stretcher-bearers experience is that,you go acrose the batol fild about 15 times a day,and try not to get shot.

    Simson said that because they had ran out of stretcher and he had to start carring them on his back.

    Duffy was a big help because now he diden’t have carry the woonded on his back ,he could put them on duffys back.

    That job was dangerous because they were slowed down by carrying the injured men so they could easily get shot.

    Jack said bless yee lil fella because when he was walking to find injured people to take them back to the hostpital he used strechers and now he found a donkey.

    So he used the donkey to help him get the injured people back to the hospital.

    Getting shot by the opponents.

    He was trying to calm down Duffy so he could keep bringing people to the beach hospital.

    So he could carry people to the beach hospital because there were not enough stretchers.
