trench notes


commonwe a l th suppor t

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.
