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.

Good morning
I have visited your website and must say well done!! I am a researcher and amateur historian presently working on a project. I am identifying and researching all the men of Argenteuil County, Quebec, who would have died during the War or afterwards as a result of the War. I have read that No. 2 Company had men of Argenteuil. Would you have nominal rolls of this company by chance? I saw on your website one death, L/Cpl Anderson, which I didn't have in my database so thank you for this.
I am also researching General John Burton White, who is the Great-Uncle of my daughter's spouse. I was able to get some images of some newspaper clippings as well as photographs which I can certainly share with you. I will be imaging both his WW1 and WW2 service records in the near future as well.
I will certainly be looking to purchase The 'Sawdust Fusiliers' as well.

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.
Several camps had garden patches to provide fresh vegetables for the men. Swill from the messes was sold to local farmers and the income spent on the messes, or some companies kept pigs and the swill was fed to them. On reaching maturity the pigs were sold to the RASC. Rather than have to purchase young pigs, one company at Cawdor North Camp decided to raise its own, but discovered pigs do not always obey army orders: "17 March 1942 - Delighted to notice that one of our sows is pregnant. We had come to the conclusion that her several trips to the boar had provided her with diversion only."

It is convenient at this point to describe the War Establishment of a Forestry Company, C.F.C. The Establishment (CDN/IV/1940/12A/1, DATED Mar 41) provides for a total of 194 all ranks, of whom six are officers: one Major as Commanding Officer, one Captain as Second in Command, one Adjutant, and three Subalterns "for Timber operations". Of these last, one is normally is in charge in the bush, one is in charge of the mill, and one is technical officer. There are 12 Sergeants, of whom two are Mill Foreman and five Bush Foreman, one a Blacksmith, one a M.T. Sergeant, one a Sergeant Cook, and two Assistant Instructors. It is not necessary or desirable to rehearse all the details here, as the Off icial Historian will have all War Establishments easily available to him; but it may be noted that the list of rank and file includes the following tradesmen: 2 Millwrights, 2 Sawyers, Forestry; 1 Electrician; 3 Motor Mechanics, one of whom is a Corporal, 1 Carpenter, 1 Plumber or Pipefitter; 1 Shoemaker, and 1 Tailor. Among the mass of non-tradesmen, the following groups are conspicuous: 20 Logmakers, 30 Rollers and Chainmen, 10 Road Cutters, 14 Drivers I.C. (Internal Combustion)

Dear Bob,
I hope his finds you well?
We managed to get out to Ballogie on Friday and am sending you some photographs of Camp no. 2. I might need to investigate further as it's been suggested to me that there may be a building still extant, but may have been moved!
Ballogie Camp No. 1 proved elusive, but now have the map reference I think and will go back: I was thrown by the fact it seems to have been constructed on a hillside.
I'll try and answer any questions, .

No. 2 Company, Canadian Forestry Corps - Logging Operations

The No.2 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 greatly increased volume of timber products resulting from CFC operations placed considerable strain on railway facilities. The most common difficulty was a shortage of wagons when needed, but sidings also had to be improved greatly and new loading banks or platforms constructed. This was particularly the case on Deeside where CFC and Newfoundland camps produced the greatest regional flow of timber products. Even though a new loading platform was constructed at Aboyne railway station in July 1941, congestion occurred because No. 2 and No. 3 Companies had to use the same facility.
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 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.

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.

No 2 Coy CFC Logging Reports from Library And Archives Canada Military Heritage
No. 2 Coy CFC would send a weekly logging report to HQ No. 2 District CFC. HQ No. 2 District CFC would send a weekly logging report to HQ CFC which would include logging reports of the other companies in the district. These are examples of these reports. The War Diaries of HQ No. 2 District is a good source of info for each of the companies in the district.

Postcards 1942 - courtesy of Shirley Briggs granddaughter of Pte Thomas Stanley Levy K98592

In the No. 2 Coy War Diaries there are many entries of soldiers being injured in the mills or the forest falling trees and on the roads. A soldier 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 hospitals in Aberdeen.
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

No. 2 Company, Canadian Forestry Corps - Life in Scotland

In addition to meeting its primary objective the Canadian Forestry Corps' presence in Scotland was influential in other ways: as a defensive element in the earlier years and as a social factor in many smaller communities. It was common practice for the forestry workers to pilfer some of the vehicle fuel ration to give to the local taxis in exchange to a lift to the village to the bar and dances.
Relations with some other units were not always friendly. The 174 Field Ambulance unit refused to admit men of No. 2 Company from Ballogie Camp No. 2, to their dance in the Victory Hall at Aboyne on 12 April 1941.
In the earlier phases of the CFC's presence in the Highlands the few infractions of the law were handled with tolerance by local authorities. At Glentanar Camp on 2 June 1941 "two local constables called this morning regarding the fracas which occurred last Saturday night at Kincardine O'Neil when No. 2 and 3 Companies fought No. 4 Company men. The constables were very decent about it however, only insisting that it should not happen again.
On Dominion Day 1941, No. 2, 3 and 4 Companies held a Sports Meet on Aboyne village green which was specially decorated for the day. The pipe band of the 5th Battalion Black Watch was also in attendance. After supper in the camps, the companies returned to Aboyne in the evening for a street dance (another novelty to the locals), followed by a sing-song.
A drumhead service by the CFC on Aboyne green in May 1942 was attended by a detachment of the 156 (L) Field Ambulance RAMC and the pipe band of the Royal Scots Fusiliers from Banchovy, as well as by members of all companies in District No.2.
The first Field Day of 1942 for District No. 2 at Aboyne saw all Deeside companies participating (Nos. 2, 3, 4, 13, 16, 22, 24 and 25), as well as the RAMC unit stationed there. The band of the Royal Scots Fusiliers also attended. Once again, after the events and supper in the camps, the troops returned for a street dance, despite the rain.

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.

Church parades also brought them to the public's attention as the No. 7 Coy made use of the local church buildings as well as holding religious services in the camp.
The Chaplains of the Canadian Forestry Corps were attached to CFC HQ or to one of the District HQ to serve the needs of the soldiers.

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

No.2 Company arrived at Ballogie Camp No. 2 on 1 March 1941. On 7 March, thirty- five of the men attended a local dance where they were "well received by the very friendly inhabitants," and the following day the officers' mess received a case of liquor from a Montrose man.
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".
Things weren’t always favorable No. 2 Coy CFC War Diaries - 29 Jan 1942 – Major Spittal proceeded to Banchory with Pte. K. Bigelow who appeared on a charge of “willfully and maliciously damaging the door of the Banchory Hotel on December 28th and was fined 2 pounds. This is an exceptionally heavy fine in view of the trivial nature of the offence but is typical of the attitude of the people in some of the nearby towns towards our men.

During World War Two, the fabric of No. 2 Company of the Canadian Forestry Corps drew heavily on the English-speaking sons of Argenteuil, leveraging their skills with the axe and the crosscut saw, honed on the family bush farms of their native county. No. 16 Company was formed around their French-speaking "bucheron" counterparts.......

I knew he had served during WW2 but hadn’t researched any of the details and it came as a surprise that he was posted alongside my grandfather in the CFC camp in Ballogie, Scotland. Unfortunately I don’t have any photos of him in uniform. I don’t seem to have the attached 1943 medical corps photo you refer to but if you send it again or give me a specific link I can try and ID my uncle.

Subject: CFC Co 2 - WWII
Hi Bob,
I want to extend kudos to you for your undertaking the enormous job of cataloging the WWII Canadian Forestry Corps, individuals and stories.
I stumbled across your website because you had included my 2 CFC articles and links to them in the Laurentian Heritage Network website. Good work!
I was very interested in your Co 2 muster roll. I had not seen that list before. I wanted to let you know that I have a Co 2 picture, taken in Scotland in Aug, 1941,(before I was born), kept, and handed down through the 70 intervening years, as a family heirloom. It would be great to match the faces with the names. I was able to find my uncles Buster and William Rainey, as well as Vernon Bennett, etc...
If that matching has not already been done, I'd like to help you do that. A lot of descendant around Grenville, QC would be interested in the result.
