During World War I, many persons volunteered to fight for the Triple Alliance, including some who were not in fact full citizens of either the British or French nation. Colonials (and others) were motivated by the opportunity for pay, by chances to gain personal glory of some kind, and even by loyalty to the imperial power controlling their home-lands, among many other motivations.
