When did Britain go to war with Kazakhs?

Also why are Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia listed as having fought Britain? If it's something to do with when these nations were part of Russian Empire, then why isn't Belarus included?

Also curious about the inclusion of Poland as having fought Britain. Which conflict was this? Polish Legions under Napoleon maybe?

Any other suggestions?
Not really a 'war', but then neither was the Emu war: the Glasgow Ice Cream wars, fought in the 1980s between rival drug gangs who used to (and occasionally still do) sell drugs from ice cream vans.

I heard there was a War of Fertilizers in the 60s or 70s here. Rival villages got into a fight so bad that they got out the stock fertilizers, engaging in a rare modern bio-psychological warfare.

There was a war about whether you should do the cross sign with two fingers raised or three.

Yeah.

I've not heard of that. Care to elucidate?

I read somewhere that there was an arctic theater of WW2.
Don't know much about though.
If it can even be considered a war, the children's crusade is pretty weird.
