What is the meaning of home front in world war 1?

Please remember to say 'please'; we are all very polite here.

Well, the war between Britain, France and Belgium on one side and Germany on the other was fought on the Western Front. The war between Russia and Germany/Austria-Hungary was fought on the Eastern Front. So, a 'front' means somewhere fighting took place. So, where do you think the fighting took place in the 'Home Front'? Was it abroad, or...

For more information, have a look at this page from the History Learning Site. There is also lots of information on the Spartacus Schoolnet site here.

Hope that this helps.
