One of the main reasons that Australia got involved was out of

alligence and loyaty to the "Mother Country" or Britain. However

there were many other contributing factors. For example, most

people at the time thought the war would be over in six months.

They thought it would be a great opportunity to see the world and

have an adventure. Some people also thought that Australia should

get involved to stop the enemy ever reaching Australia.

Although overall the main reason we got involved was to help our

friends in Britain.
