In 1910-1911 New Zealand organised a Territorial Force of some 30,000 men, with permanent staff and an expanded General Headquarters. New weapons and improved training meant that when war broke out on 4 August 1914, New Zealand was able to offer Britain an expeditionary force immediately. Voluntary recruitment for the ‘New Zealand Expeditionary Force’ (NZEF) – began on 8 August 1914. By the end of the first week of the war 14,000 had enlisted. The troop convoy carrying the Main Body of the NZEF left Wellington harbour bound for Egypt on 16 October 1914. The NZEF portion of the convoy consisted of 8534 soldiers and their horses embarked on ten transport ships. The NZEF contributed an infantry brigade and they landed in the Dardanelles on 25 April 1915. The New Zealanders landed 8556, 4852 NZ forces wounded, 2721 NZ forces fatalities during the eight-month (260 - days) Gallipoli campaign. New Zealand Mounted Rifles Brigade of the NZEF returned to Egypt, where it was rested and reinforced during the first four months of 1916. When the New Zealand Division left for France, the New Zealand Mounted Rifles regiments remained behind to serve in the Sinai campaign of 1916 and then in the Palestine campaign of 1917–18. The New Zealand Division suffered 7048 casualties in only 23 days on the Somme.

The First Division, originally totalled 84,966 men, was considerably drawn upon by voluntary enlistment.
