Native Labour Corps

Although the 1st World War was fought for more colonial territory the ANC supported the Allies against the Germans in the hope that it would help to end racial tyranny in South Africa. Many Africans were killed in Europe. They were part of the 'Native Labour Corps' seen here entertaining allied troops in France in 1917.
