* In an internal conflict, often both sides can invoke this trope. Thus during the AmericanRevolution, both Patriots and Loyalists were fighting for their homes and country, and in the end the losing side had to emigrate to Canada. The situation for Republicans and Loyalists during the Troubles in Northern Ireland was also like this.

This group of people lost their homeland and has been seeking it ever since. Perhaps it was destroyed, or they were exiled, or they were on the losing end of a war. They often want their original home back and prepare to solve the problem that prevent them to live in it. However in cynical story, some bad things usually happened in progress, making it inhabitable. They decided to abandon it, choosing to [[WalkingTheEarth wander around]] until they [[HomeSweetHome find someplace to call home]].

Whatever the reason, [[HomeSweetHome they want someplace to call home]]. Preferably their original home, but they might choose not to be picky. And they'll do just about anything for someone who can promise them that home back.

** Poles did it a LOT throughout their recent history. Polish volunteers fought in the UsefulNotes/TheAmericanRevolution, UsefulNotes/TheFrenchRevolution, Napoleonic armies, in the Liberal Wars of Portugal, the Hungarian Revolution of 1848, all with the goal of eventually restoring Poland. They also signed on as Polish Legions (again) specifically against Russia on behalf of Austria-Hungary, on the condition that Austrians should support Polish independence after WorldWarI.
* During WorldWar2, despite their country being under German occupation, Poland was actually one of the larger allies in terms of troops under arms in the European Theatre. By the end of the war there nearly a quarter of a million Polish troops served the Western Allies and a similar number the Soviets in various support and combat roles, as against fewer than 5 million troops fielded by the other Western powers and 7 by the Soviets.
* The Indian National Army during WorldWar2 was, depending on your perspective, either this or TheQuisling, as they signed on to fight for an independent India against the British with the support of Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan.

** Defeated Spanish Republicans wound up fighting for the armies of various Allied countries after the Spanish Civil War. Some, like Enrique Lister, wound up fighting alongside FidelCastro (or at least supporting his movement) in Cuba after WorldWar2.

** The [[AllInTheManual backstory]] reveals that this is the original reason for the Hiigarans' exile. Back when they were TheEmpire, the Hiigarans used one of the Great Hyperspace Cores to devastate the Taiidani homeworld. After they lost their Core, along with most of their fleet, the Taiidani retaliated and took Hiigara for themselves, since they were now short a homeworld.

* The Sforza dynasty was started by the leader of a band of PrivateMilitaryContractors that used his men to take over an Italian city-state. They decided on Milan; Sforza ended up hiring LeonardoDaVinci when the latter ended up being too prissy for the {{Medici}}s' tastes.

* ''{{Eberron}}'' sees this trope a lot. The people of Cyre in particular, as the Day of Mourning which ended the Last War created [[{{Mordor}} the Mournland]] out of their former home. The main settlement of Cyran survivors has internal tension about ''how'' they should go about it -- some wanted to claim independence where they were, while others wanted to seek something else (mostly out of a desire to not betray the trust of the only nation to go so far as to offer the Cyran survivors a decent area to settle down and govern themselves autonomously in).
