Let us not forget the call to arms that went out across the
whole Commonwealth and spurred a race to come to the help of
Britain and her allies in time of need. Australia, New Zealand,
Canada, India, South Africa, West Indies, Nepal and a host of
other countries rallied to the cry.
Tragically, many thousands of young men, the flower of their
generation did not survive battles such as Gallipoli to tell
their tales upon return.
Britain owes a huge debt of
gratitude for the immense support
that they willingly brought to
the Western Front and elsewhere.
