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.

On reaching their numbers the No. 13 Coy then proceeded by train from Halifax, Nova Scotia for military training at Valcartier Camp, Quebec where they would have had 5 to 7 months training. After completion of training the men travelled by train to Halifax for embarkation on one of the troops ships. Train Schedule Number 297 Serial #2114. Embarking from Quebec 18 Jun 1941 arriving at the destination Halifax 19 Jun 1941. They would travel in convoys escorted by destroyers. They disembarked at a Clyde estuary port, whence they proceeded by train to their Scottish Camp.

My Great Grandfather has since passed away, so I could not tell you the other man's name. The names written are that man's writing. The men in the photo should be the same names as the other photo you had sent me, just perhaps not in the same order.

At the end some of the companies went to the mainland in the Invasion of Normandy, some stayed in Scotland to work in their lumber mills, some were disbanded and went back to Canada. The 13th Coy was one of the Companies that stayed to work in the forest of Scotland. The ten companies that stayed in Scotland were 4, 6, 10, 11, 13, 18, 19, 20, 22 and 24. However a lot of men were transferred from one company depending on where that soldier was needed.
Beginning in March 1945, operations ceased for these remaining companies: three shut down in March, two in April, four in May and one in June. No. 10 Company shut down the Dochfour mill on 29 May 1945 and on 11 June 1945 helped move No. 13 Company from Orrin Bridge Camp to the train at Beauly before its own close-down on 16 June 1945, the last CFC company to operate in Scotland. On 21 July 1945 it was officially disbanded.

No. 13 Company, Canadian Forestry Corps - Logging Operations

The No. 13 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 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 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. CFC lorries often were called on to transport personnel of other units as well as its own.

Although CFC companies were not directly involved in actual hostilities with the enemy in Scotland, they often were not far distant from bombings. Ballogie Camp No. 2 and the whole area around was shaken by the air bombing of Aberdeen on the night of 21 April 1943.

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 milesé160 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.

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 majority of companies (18 of 30) remained at the same camp throughout their entire time in Scotland, but nine were in two camps, two in three, and No. 13 Company, which had been in South Esk; Brechin, District 2, occupied three other camps (being twice at Orrin Bridge) as well as operating mainly near Dochfour in its final days in Scotland. District No. 5 Headquarters included Orrin Bridge and Bog of Shannon Camps as well the camps of The Aird south of Beauly, and Dochfour at the outlet of Loch Ness. 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. Company No. 13 at Orrin Bridge Camp, had to reinforce Garve Bridge before hauling wood from the area, some 20 kilometres west of Dingwall. Such improved roads and road extensions were to prove important to Scottish forestry operations in postwar years. The roads over the Grampians to the south were liable to blockage with any significant snowfall: "6 January 1943 - the District Paymaster attempted to return from No. 13 Company (at Southesk Camp) via the Cairn-o-mouth Road as the shortest distance home but it was snow-blocked so he had to use the coast road via Stonehaven.`` All of the other 32 camps except for South Esk Camp lay north of the Highland Line, and even at South Esk much of the cut took place along the south face of the Grampian Mountains.

No. 13 Coy had a number of soldiers being injured in the mills or the forest falling trees and on the roads. A soldiers toes being chopped off with an axe and another soldier losing fingers in the saw in the mill. There a good many soldiers injured and sent to Tulloch Hospital in Tulloch Castle, Dingwall.
For more information go to Illness Injuries & Hospitals
Also some soldiers were killed from the accidents they were in. For more information go to CFC Casualties

In each of the forestry camps there a camp hospital for minor injuries and illness. There would be a sergeant of the Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps to look after the health issues of the soldiers of the camp. There were Medical Officers of the RCAMC as well attached to the CFC HQ and District HQ in the event of major injuries and illness. The Medical Officer would also visit the camps to ensure hygiene and etc including a short arm inspection once in awhile. For info on Medical Officers go to Doctors of the CFC
As well in the CFC HQ and in each of the District HQ there was a dentist attached to look after the dental needs of the soldiers. The Dental Officer would have his office in one of the camps and would also go to the camps to check all the soldiers. For more info go to Dentists of the CFC
Also no soldier wants to go without pay. Pay parades were held regularly in addition to when a group of soldiers were going on leave they would be paid the day before. Also go to Paymasters of the CFC

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. 2 Coy made use of the local church buildings as well as holding religious services in the camp.

The Scottish people above all appreciated the kindness shown local children by members of the CFC. Christmas celebrations however, were the highlights. CFC personnel went out of their way to make the day memorable for the local children, many of whom came from poor crofts and many of whose fathers were away in the services

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".

Thank you so very much for your CFC posting. It is most comprehensive. I am so excited to have located the photograph of Private CF Taylor Co. 13. He was a brother to my grandmother. Clarence was a WW I veteran who served in France. I have a copy of a letter to his parents dated September 21, 1941 in which he describes King George stopping to speak to him at an inspection at Balmoral Castle. Clarence returned home to Wittenburg, NS. Lived to age 79 and was well known as a story teller, singer and fiddler.
I am putting together stories about great grandfathers, uncles and an aunt who served in the WWs for my grandchildren. My goal is to go beyond “the names” as each of the grandchildren asked “ Do we have any family who fought in the wars?” I am working on this project with my 12 yr. old grandson. He has completed school project - a great Uncle who landed on Juno Beach, DDay.
So, your posting has given me a valuable piece to add to the story and perhaps for another school project.

Hi Bob,
The photo you sent is amazingly clear and I have been able to zoom in on my uncle very nicely. I don't really recognize him at the age he was in the photo. He would have been 34 at the time. The identifiable feature was the dark circles around his eyes which he always had. Uncle Harold had moved to Ontario when he returned from the war but I remember him when he visited his parents, who lived next door to my family, throughout the 50's, 60's and 70's. Unfortunately, at that time, I was not asking questions about the War and he never spoke about it. I never saw any war memorabilia that he might have had and I have no pictures of him in uniform, which is why I was so excited when I saw this picture on line. He passed in 1985 and one of his sons, with whom I had some contact, passed in 2010. I have not been able to get in contact with his one remaining son, my cousin, who lives in Ontario. The info that you sent has been my only contact which I appreciate so much. I never knew he was in 13th Coy although I knew he was in the Forestry Corps. I read the info. on the 13th Coy web pg. and looked carefully at the photos - but it is difficult to identify him when you cannot zoom in. I see him in the photo "Quebec 1940" and the other large group shot. The info is very interesting. I will copy and study it more carefully and try to get copies of some of the books mentioned.
As I said in my first e-mail, one of my uncle's was KIA in France (Operation Tractable Aug. 14/44) and is buried at Bretteville sur Laize War Cemetery. He was GGFG armoured corps. I do have a couple of pictures of him with my father who served in the RCA. Unfortunately I have very few photos of any of them. I have been told that there is a picture of the three brothers in uniform in the Truro Legion Hall. I need to get in there and find out
Again, Thank You and much appreciated, I hope to stay in touch and I will try to visit the Debert Museum this summer.
Regards, Steve

Hi Bob,
Thank you for your response I would absolutely love to have that picture emailed to me if you could !! My dad would love that so much he has some of his stuff from the war and a big picture of all of the soldiers, I have his personal picture from it and Dad has his hat, metals, rings, etc. It is amazing my grampie would be 106 this year I think!! My dad does keep track of how old he is and tells me and my sister lots of stories !! Do you have any info of him ??
Thank you
Krista Snider

Hi, My husband has a photo of the 13th company Forestry Corp taken in Scotland in August 1941. . His father was Charles W. Pemberton who married in Scotland where
his two oldest sons were born. His mother came to Nova Scotia as a war bride with her two sons one of which was my husband Victor Pemberton. They settled in Nova Scotia
where the other five children were born. Do you have this group photo? If you would like it I will send it to you. Marie
