The war created a crisis in wood supply for the United Kingdom. Pre-war domestic production covered only a small fraction of the timber needed to support the war effort. In addition to civilian requirements, it was estimated that every soldier needed five trees: one for living quarters, messing, and recreation; one for crates to ship food, ammunition, tanks, and so on; and three for explosives, gun stocks, coffins, ships, factories, and direct or indirect support for the fighting line.
Canadians stepped up to fill this need. During 1941 and 1942, thirty companies drawn from all regions of Canada, totalling 220 officers and 6,771 regulars, were deployed to Scotland.
Also it takes a number of support soldiers for each fighting soldier.

"We did load a ship with lumber, yeah. And it went to Africa and I took a chalk and I wrote my name and address on the board. I get to, it was about a month after, first thing I get this letter from the soldier in Africa. He says, "I want to tell you, he said, that you people, your job is important," he said, "We used your lumber today, we landed in Africa."

Once again the British Government turned to Overseas Woodsman to assist in the war effort. Given their impressive record in World War One it was natural that they looked to Canada to provide forestry units once again. In May 1940 the Canadian Government decided to form a Canadian Forestry Corps. Twenty Companies were initially formed with ten more as the war progressed.
The financial agreement between the two Governments as similar to that in World War I. Canada would bear the cost of pay, allowances and pensions, all initial personal equipment, transport to and from the United Kingdom. The British Government paid for "all other services connected with equipment, work or maintenance" and certain others, including medical services. Canada covered the cost for Medical Officers and Britain paid for hospitalization.
The arrangement was unusual as it resulted in a Canadian Unit working for the British, who controlled the areas of work and disposal of the product, but Military operations of the C.F.C. was never surrendered by the Canadians and came under command of Canadian Military Headquarters in London. Even though the C.F.C. had to serve two masters, no serious problems ever resulted.
Mobilization centres for the Corp spanned all across Canada, and recruited both English and French speaking personnel. Many of the volunteers were veterans of World War One, including the Corp's Commander, Brigadier- General J.B. White. Many of the men carried out the same duties as they did in civilian life, such as loggers, black smiths, lawyers, store man, cooks and clerks. The big difference between the new Corp and their World War One counter parts were the new Corp were considered Combat Troops.

H.C.M.T Andes
- No. 12, 14 and 16 Companies CFC went to Scotland from Halifax aboard the H.C.M.T Andes with a convoy that included the following ships....

On reaching their numbers the No. 14 Coy then proceeded by rail to Quebec City for military training at nearby Valcartier Camp where they and other Company's would have had 5 to 7 months training. After completion of training the men travelled by train to Halifax for embarkation, where they joined other units to make the crossing of the North Atlantic in convoy. The crossing itself was about 9 days. They disembarked at a Clyde estuary port, whence they proceeded by trains and lorries to their Scottish Camps.

At the end some of the companies went to the mainland of North West Europe, some stayed in Scotland to work at their saw mills; some were disbanded and went back to Canada. The No. 14 Coy was one of the Companies that went to the mainland of North West Europe. No. 1 Coy along with 9, 14, 25 and 27 went to Belgium in Oct 1944. No. 5 Coy, along with 15, 16, 28 and 30 went to Normandy in Aug 1944. However a lot of men were transferred from one company depending on where that soldier was needed. A lot of men were transferred earlier to other units.

Prior to the arrival of the Canadian lumberjacks there were various undertakings by the British Government to aid in the harvesting of limber for their own use. Such contributions were helpful, but on occasion the efforts of unskilled workers created problems for the professionals later.
The No. 14 Coy brought with them the most up-to-date logging equipment then available in Canada. They brought a standard medium type rotary mill with a capacity of 1500-2000 bd. ft. an hour or c. 8,000 cu. ft a week/3-5-4-7 cm an hour or 227 cm a week. (The British Forestry Commission also provided the company with a Scotch mill or bench, but these were not popular with the Canadians.) Power was supplied by 100-horsepowe Diesel generators. Logging equipment included TD9 caterpillar tractors, lorries, sulkies (pneumatic-tired arches), angle dozers for road making, and two and three drum winches for high-lead logging. They also were equipped with a variety of transportation vehicles, four tractors, two sulkies, one motorcycle, and originally six bicycles.
The No. 14 Coy consisted of 190 - 230 all ranks, under the command of a major. British authorities already had identified and requisitioned the major forest resources to be harvested. It laid on privately owned land, the owner had a long tradition of scientific forestry and was generally willing to assist in the wartime emergency despite the cost to their long-range forestry programmes.
The camps were located on estate property near a road to permit vehicle access. Buildings were mostly frame, lumber cut in Corp's sawmills. Some Nissen huts were erected and housed shoemakers, armourers carpenters as well as serving other purposes
Men were housed in huts accommodating 14 men each. A cookhouse, ablution hut with hot and cold showers, sergeants' quarters and mess, officers' quarters and mess, orderly room, medical hut, quartermaster stores, garage and workshop were present in the camp.
The heavy-laden Canadian lumber lorries from mills to shipping points placed a great deal of strain on local roads and access roads even when they were gravelled, particularly during rainy periods.

Even before felling could begin most companies had to introduce an access road network in the forests to enable their mechanized equipment to be used, in contrast to the widespread use of horses in prewar local forests. Road building and maintenance continued to occupy part of the CFC personnel even after the initial period. The heavy-laden Canadian lumber lorries from mills to shipping points placed a great deal of strain on local roads and access roads even when they were gravelled, particularly during rainy periods

The military role of the CFC as distinct from its industrial role, was important, particularly during the period of possible German Invasion after the fall of France. Personnel were allowed to wear civilian clothing while working, but uniforms were required for military activities and when on leave. As combatant troops they received additional military training on Saturdays after their week's work in the woods. This included practice on rifle ranges and tactical exercises with other military units. Periodically they participated in weekend military schemes in their areas.

In regards to discipline CFC Headquarters might declare that "severe disciplinary action is to be taken against anyone convicted of poaching game" on February 1943, but it was not an easy thing to check professional woodsman in a wooded setting. By far the majority of CFC personnel respected Scottish sporting rights, but coming as they did from a country where most rivers are open for public fishing and hunting at least seasonally involves a significant number of the population, the temptation was great.
The CFC was apparently well liked in the Scottish Highlands. The men became active participants in local functions, from fundraising to staging Christmas parties for the local children. Many times, scrap wood mysteriously fell from lorries beside homes in need of fuel. A notable tribute to the CFC was paid by Laura Lady Lovat when she stated, "you Canadians may be cutting the Scots firs of the Highlands, but in Highland hearts you are planting something far more lasting".

Members of the CFC were seen in uniform regularly at local parades in support of varied wartime causes. In addition to their distinctive cap badges and shoulder patches, from Mar 1943 the CFC were identified by a green triangle below the 'Canada' flash on the upper arm of the battle dress.
Church parades also brought them to the public's attention as the No. 9 Coy made use of the local church buildings as well as holding religious services in the camp.
CFC personnel went out of their way to make Christmas Day memorable for the local children, many of whom came from poor crofts and many of whose fathers were away in the service. No. 14 Company at Wilderness Camp also donated toys made by its members in their own time, for sale in Aviemore and Inverness on behalf of the Red Cross Fund. Personnel gave up their rations of candy so that the children might have them.
Some of the men were of Scottish origin and to them it was a coming home event.

There was much interaction between CFC personnel and the Scottish civilian population. In most camp areas there was always something going on. The more isolated camps were forced to rely more on their own resources.

When No. 14 Company had relocated to the Boat of Garten, they found the “Newfies” logging the other of the hill. They were supposedly cutting pit props but there was a lot of sawlog material in their stand. An arrangement was made that they would truck the sawlogs over to No. 14 Coy mill as No. 14 Coy was running out of suitable sawlog material. About 65% of the logs coming to the mill came from the NFU or Newfoundland Forestry Oversease Unit. Jenny Higgins. ©2006, Newfoundland and Labrador Heritage Web Site (Nov 2015)

Companies usually worked in two sections, "one cutting 'in the bush' and bringing out the timber, the other sawing it into lumber in the company mill, and both using mostly Canadian mechanical equipment," The relative openness of the cultivated Scottish forests in contrast to the tangled undergrowth of most natural Canadian pleased the CFC. Nevertheless, pressure had to be applied to Canadian fallers to cut trees close to the ground in Scottish fashion, rather than higher up, which left unsightly stump-fields so common in home forestry operations. The felling crew consisted of three men, two sawing down and one trimming or limbing. Hand saws and axes were the tools employed. The trees involved reflected the variety of Scottish plantations, with Scot pine, spruce and larch particularly common, but also Douglas fir and hardwoods on occasion.
The frequent alternation of rain and snow proved unexpected for many of the Canadians, accustomed to a more continuous snow season. Men's hands were often cut up by handling wet lumber in raw cold weather. Most of the area where they were working in Scotland lay north of 57degrees N, a higher latitude location than most forest operations in Canada-approximately the latitude of Mile 150 on the Alaska Highway (some 100 milesι160 kilometres north of Fort St. John, B.C.), Fort McMurray, Alberta, Lynn Lake, Manitoba, and the Belcher Islands in Hudson Bay. Consequently, the longer winter darkness period in Scotland was an inconvenience for the felling teams at the extreme ends of the working day and working hours had to be adjusted to seasonal light conditions. (Companies worked a full-hour day, with precise hours decided by individual company commanders.
There was no specific equipment provided for loading logs on trucks when they had to be transported to the mill. In most cases where the logging was conducted not too far from the mill, the trees could be taken tree length to the mill by the sulky and bucked (cut into log lengths) at the landing.

As Allied invasion preparations increased in late winter and spring of 1944 the CFC also prepared for movement across the Channel. At Lamington Park No. 9 Company noted "The Coast that lies only a few miles from us, after having been evacuated in December last year, bristles with training activities, The Firth (Cromarty) with float landing craft of various descriptions; the roar of guns that even shake our camp can be heard by day and night, the surrounding countryside is the site of several airfields and the activities of aircraft are carried out continually."
In later developments ten companies and one District Headquarters were returned to Canada from Scotland to form five fuelwood cutting units in mid-October 1943 - District No. 1 Headquarters, and Companies No. 2, 3, 7, 8, 12, 17, 21, 23, 26 and 29.
Beginning in the spring of 1944 further Canadian Forestry Corps companies were withdrawn from Scottish timber operations in preparations for the Invasion of Normandy. The Companies that went to the mainland were not comprised of the same men. The men that were to go over were selected by the officers who were chosen to lead the men. The officers had to keep in mind in the selection that they needed men with certain skills and were they young enough for the job. Going to the mainland was different from working in Scotland. Companies No. 5, 15, 16, 28, and 30 made up No. 1 Canadian Forestry Group, mobilized 1 May 1944, with its headquarters located briefly at Wilderness Camp and then at Beaufort Castle. (A further five companies joined them subsequently, which was Companies No. 1, 9, 14, 25 and 27. The first five companies were sent to Carronbridge Camp just north of Thornhill, Dumfriesshire, for further military training. The men of these first five companies thought they were the cream of the crop until they heard that they on their way to Belgium. They proceeded directly to a staging area at Lancing, Sussex, in southern England. The first companies crossed the Channel from Portsmouth to Normandy beaches in the last days in July and the first in August 1944. From there they moved with the First Canadian Army in the advance across North-West Europe.
