Worksheet 2.2

Reasons for men deciding to go to war

a) I went to war because the school books taught me it was a romantic thing - drums, uniforms, marching and glory

1) Loyalty to Britain and the Empire

b) I wanted to stop the enemy - I believed they were cruel and savage

2) Duty

c) I joined because I could not have looked people in the eye if I hadn't - I would have been a coward

3) Shame

d) I joined because I thought it would be a chance to get away from the farm and see the world

4) Mateship

e) I joined because it was every Australians duty to defend old Mother England where we had originally come from

5) Adventure

f) I joined because there was a drought and I had no work - and the pay was good

6) Money

g) I joined because Australia had to do her bit and show the world she was a great young nation

7) Romance and glory

h) I joined because my mates did - I wanted to stay with them

8) Patriotism to Australia



Gallipoli and the Anzacs - Unit 1 - Australia is at war—1914


B Battery Sergeant Major G Ellswrth

If I had stayed at home I would never have been able to hold my head up & look any decent girl in the face… Surely everyone must realise that the Empire is going thro a Crisis it has never gone thro’ before and that everyone is expected to do his duty now.



C. Private AJ McSparrow

I have enlisted… and I don’t regret it in the very least. I believe it is every young fellows duty. There are far better men than any of us have already gone, … besides every paper one lifts has something to say about young fellows being so slow in coming forward… we are the sort of young men who should go.


D Lance Corporal FC Mulvey

I have enrolled as a volunteer… one (son) can be spared for defence of Australia and Australia’s fate is going to be decided on the continent and not out here… being suited in physique and occupation and being prompted by a sense of duty and spirit of adventure I can hardly do anything else but volunteer.


J Lieutenant DG Armstrong

I am going to have a try for the war… I think I ought to go, they want all they can get and … I think it is the greatest opportunity for a chap to make a man of himself, those that come back from this war will be the right sort that anybody could be proud of.
