Best Answer

The colonies of Africa and Asia belonged to the nations fighting WWI. Naturally, those colonies aided their mother country on the path to Victory. Also, some colonies (such as German Tanganyika) had soldiers stationed in the region. They fought and invaded their enemy's colonies and colonial forces.
