Britain s imperial strength in ww1

Britain’s imperial strength in ww1

L.O. Be able to summarise Kennedy’s opinion of the effect of the First World War on Britain’s imperial position

(Useful for many questions but especially if you decide to compare the effect of the 1st and 2nd World Wars)


Research task

Research task

1. For each of India, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, South Africa, Ireland, East Africa find out the following:

A) Attitude to entering WWI in support of Britain

B) Numbers of troops deployed and casualties

C) Other resources contributed

D) Battlefronts where they fought/suffered heavy losses

E) Effects of the war on that country’s attitude to empire

Use the article and the internet to research the above

Jonny B + Tim – India, Brad + Rob G – Australia, Cyrus + Jordy – New Zealand, Aarun + Josh – Canada, Adiel + Matt R – South Africa, Marco + Rob S – Ireland (not lots in article, you’ll need to look at Easter Rising too), Jonny W + Matt W – East Africa

Produce a fact file for your country – this must be printed out and handed to me by the end of the lesson


Colonial contribution

Colonial contribution

The colonies felt that they deserved a reward for their contribution/suffering and Britain arguably responded to this pressure in e.g. the Montagu Declaration of 1917 to India:

“Increasing association of Indians in every branch of administration, and the Gradual development of self governing Institutions with a view to the progressive realisation of responsible governments in India as an Integral part of the British Empire.”
