Can you show me specifically where Australian, New Zealand, Canadian or any other Commowealth / Empire troops were ORDERED to defend the UK at the
expense of domestic security.
Australian troops served in North Africa and then Crete etc.
After Japan entered the war in 1941 all but 1 Division of Australian troops who were serving in Europe / Africa etc were relocated to The Pacific.
The remaining division served in the victory at El Alamein then it to was relocated to the Pacific theatre.
Some individual Australians served in the British Armed Forces and remained with them throughout the war.
In addition, when Japan entered the war in December 1941 all the Australian RAN ships that were serving in The Mediterranean returned home to defend
Oh, and by the way, it's either the UK or Great Britain and not just England alone.
