There were many reasons why the Australian government committed itself to be involved in the Britain war in 1914. Britain was the mother country and Australia felt the need to assist them due to this asset. Britain had most of the power even though Australia federated in 1901. We were also still following the British Monarch and didn't want to disappoint our leaders. our trade relied heavily on the British. They provided us with produce that we couldn't 'create' ourselves and were a source for our things to go to. Without Britain's assistance, the Australian citizens wouldn't have been as well off.
