Turkey was involved in WW1 and the Turkish troops contained an African and a Muslim contingent. After centuries of slavery people in the British Caribbean were relishing their freedom. Though many took pride in their loyalty to the “Mother Country”.
When WW1 began. West Indians donated large sums of money to aid the war effort. They also volunteered to fight for Britain, joining The British West India Regiment.
