In this episode, it states that the first shot of WW1 occurs in Africa 4 days after the Commonwealth declares war, however, 17,000km's from Europe, it was ACTUALLY fired in Australia 4 hours after war was declared.

Please see article from the Australian Broadcasting Commision for confirmation; http://www.abc.net.au/news/2014-08-05/thousands-commemorate-first-shot-of-wwi-in-portsea-victoria/5647724
