The Empire Called to Arms Learning Resources
Rally Round the Flag In 1914 the British Empire occupied a quarter of the known surface of the globe. The Empire was ruled by King George V and included countries like India, Australia, Canada, Newfoundland, New Zealand and South Africa, as well as large parts of Africa, the West Indies and the Far East. © IWM (Art.IWM PST 2693)
West Indian Troops The outbreak of the First World War saw a great response from the Empire. A total of nearly 8,586,000 men were raised for military and naval service. Twenty per cent of volunteers were from Africa, the Indian subcontinent and the Caribbean, with the vast majority coming from India. © IWM (Q 52423)
Wounded Indian soldiers In 1914 the Indian Army was the largest volunteer army in the world. Four Indian divisions landed in France in 1914 and helped contain the German advance through Flanders during the early stages of the war whilst volunteer units from other countries, including Britain, were still in training. This photograph shows a group of wounded soldiers in a French village. © IWM (Q 53348)

This painting shows a Sepoy, which was the name given to an infantry soldier, in the Indian Army. © IWM (Art.IWM ART 2346)
Pagri (Turban) Indian Army Some 113,743 Indians were reported dead, wounded or missing at the end of the war, and many were decorated for their efforts. Indian personnel won 12,445 British and 463 Allied medals and decorations for bravery, including 12 Victoria Cross awards, the highest award for bravery.. © IWM (UNI 12270)

King’s African Rifles posing with a Maxim Gun The East and West African campaigns highlight the imperial nature of the First World War. Territories governed by Britain, France, Belgium and later Portugal provided soldiers and supplies to capture Germany’s African colonies. This photograph shows members of the King’s African Rifles from East Africa. © IWM (Q 52538)
East African Porters Men also served as carriers and porters, helping to transport ammunition and food. These porters are members of the 2nd Road Corps, from modern day Kenya. © IWM (Q 15625)
Women grain sellers with food for troops Although much of the actual fighting on the continent took place in East Africa, British colonies in both East and West Africa contributed money and natural resources to the war effort. Large quantities of food were brought to government stations, usually by women and children, to provide food for the troops and carriers. © IWM (Q 17124)
