In England, WW1 conscription ended in 1919. For twenty years, there after that, there was no conscription in Britain. In 1939, conscription for World War II began, and did not end until the mid-1960's.

Riots, protests, demonstrations.

No, military service has never been mandatory in Australia although, in times of need, conscription has been introduced which means that all males between certain ages must register for miltary services.
