Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Hold on a sec: The Ottoman Turks declared war on Britain. They sided with the Germans and Austrians of their own free will.

The Arabs got the Hijazz, Mesopotamia, and the eastern two thirds of Palestine from the British, who withdrew only a few years after the end of the war.

Sikes/Piquat was never actually implemented.
