Short answer? When the Japanese Empire is knocking on your door (quite literally), you don't need much encouragement to go to war. The Australian soldiers were known throughout the Pacific Theater for the Bravery and Steadfastness. The defining moment for Australian Troops was in Papua New Guniea, where they grouped with Americans to oust the Japanese and prevent a possible invasion of the Australian Mainland. as well as the answer above, australians are known for helping their mates(buddies). australians were not going to sit back and watch their mates fight alone, nor were they going to let some other nation tell us what to do. so as you can see we didnt need much encouragement to fight for what is ours
