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.

At the end some of the companies went to the mainland in the Invasion of Normandy, some stayed in Scotland to work at their mills, some were disbanded and went back to Canada. The No. 4 Coy was one of the Companies that stayed to work in the forests of Scotland. The ten companies that stayed in Scotland were No. 4, 6, 10, 11, 13, 18, 19, 20, 22 and 24. However at this time a lot of men were transferred from one company to another depending on where that soldier was needed most.
No. 27 Coy was in Camp 17, Cooperhill, Forres. It was one of the companies that went to NW Europe. Soon after they cleared camp, No. 4 Coy moved there from Glentanar, Dinnet to Cooperhill, Forres.

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 Nissan 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.

Just looked at your website found it very interesting as I came from Scotland in 1953 and I attended the movies at the camp at Cooperhill near where I went to school.
I was looking at the Nissen Huts pictures and story about them there's still a couple of them at Cooperhill or there was a few years ago when I was on holiday.

No. 4 Company, Canadian Forestry Corps - Logging Operations

The No. 4 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 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 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.
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 miles or 160 kilometers 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.

World War 2 With WW2 Deeside's Forests took on a strategic importance for the second time in one century. Ironically, most of the indigenous woodmen had been 'called up' to serve in Highland Infantry, and the shortfall in labour was taken up by Newfoundland and Canadian Timber Corps men. The Newfoundlanders worked mainly with lighter, pit-props for the Coal mines, a very strategic product, whilst the Canadians with their heavier equipment concentrated on saw-milling railway sleepers, poles and the very best logs going to build anti-tank obstacles for the South of England beaches

No. 4 Company, Canadian Forestry Corps - Life in Scotland

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.
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.
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.
There was limited interest in hiking or climbing despite the Highlands setting - after heavy outdoor work in all weathers, often on steep slopes, this was not surprising. Nevertheless on 2 January 1943, one officer and 44 other ranks from No. 4 Company at Glentanar Camp set out in the morning intending to climb to the top of Lochnagar, 3,786 ft. They encountered so much snow however that they were unable to reach the top and returned to camp.

Hospitals HQ No 2 Dist CFC - Library And Archives Canada Military Heritage

This one of a number of hospitals used by the soldiers of Canadian Forestry Corps
In some of the forestry camps there would be a camp hospital or M.R.D. Medical Reception Depot 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 No. 2 District Dental Officer had his Dental Clinic Office in the No. 2 Coy CFC Camp but would go to the camps of No. 2 District CFC to check out the teeth of the soldiers there. For more info go to Dentists of the CFC
Also no soldier wants to go without pay. HQ No 2 Dist CFC 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
Church parades also brought them to the public's attention as the No 2 District CFC 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.
For extra information on the Chaplains go to Chaplains of the CFC

You asked if I had any old photos of when I was a kid .Here's one taken by a Canadian from Cooperhill Camp #4 .It must have been on a Sunday . We had moved from Cooperhill to Berrylea where my father who had been a Seaforth Highlander in the first war 1 Dad worked here on the farm . In this snapshot is my mother Jane Fraser with Charlie and a neighbour girl and myself . This was when I was old enough to go see the movies at the camp with my friends from school. The ones I remember must have been Bud Abbot and Lou Costelo and Roy Rogers . My friend from school Ronnie Gill and the rest of the kids would sit right up on the front row .and I remember the red chairs that were right in the front as they belonged to the Canteen . I also remember when the lights came back on making a mad dash to pick up all the pop bottles and we would take them up to the canteen counter and cash them in for a Pepsi .That was the very first time I had heard of Pepsi Cola .One time I didn't have enough to buy a Pepsi and there I was peering up at the fellow behind the counter and I must have looked disappointed because all the fellows sitting around the big wood stove called to him give the kid a Pepsi . I remember all the children being invited at Christmas time to the camp and a table was set up with chocolate bars and candy on the stage and we were given the word to get up there . and back right away to the great amusement of all the soldiers and guests seated in the hall.. My first teacher at Conicavel school Miss Findleyson she is not in the school picture as she married a Canadian from #4 camp .I really liked her . As a going away gift for her my mother gave me a tartan pin cushion to give her and I remember how pleased she was I am sure it was taken to Canada as she wrote me my very first letter saying how pleased she was to receive it . I read that letter over and over many times . Some of my pleasant memories of the Canadian Forestry Corps and how kind they were to us kids .I think it got my thinking about Canada and how one day I was going to go there .

Lots of people in Scotland smoked Sweet Caporal cigarettes from the Canadian Camp.
The cigarette packages with the aircraft silhouettes.
After the movie was over we kids would also collect the empty cigarette packages that had aircraft recognision silhouettes on the inside flap we knew every aircraft on them .
We would have been great airplane spotters as we knew them all .As it was there was a great deal of aircraft flying over either training sometimes we saw spitfires following the leader in loops and twists and we watched to see if tail end Charlie would make it .
Lots of bombers also we took it all in our stride didn't worry too much about German aircraft but we said to each other we will just jump in the ditch if one comes over on our way to and from school I had about a little over 2 miles to walk to school and each of us carried a gas mask in a round metal container.
The Canadian Forestry Camps had a great impact on the lives of us kids and many people in the area ..

Hi Bob.
I saw your article on ancestry.com, regarding the CFC in Scotland during WWII.
I actually live in the only remaining building from Camp 27, Glentanar, Dinnet. I belive this was home to No. 4 Company CFC from April 1941 until they were relocated to Forres in Nov 44.
I'd love to know if you have any further info with respect to this particular camp. The building I live in was, I'm told, used as the common room. It's still in reasonable condition but has been over-clad with cedar shingles at some point and obviously the inside has been upgraded over the years.
If you know of anyone who has an interest in this camp, feel free to pass on my e-mail.
I'm not that well informed about it, but would love to hear any stories or info from the war years.
I've lived here about 10 years now and spend much of my time in the surrounding hills which would have been so familiar to those lads back then.
Hope to hear from you and best wishes from Scotland.
Regards,
Andy Hall

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.
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. 4 Coy made use of the local church buildings as well as holding religious services in the camp. One of the most memorable events for the CFC was a Royal Inspection of 600 men officers and men of the Corps by the King and Queen at Balmoral Castle on 7 September 1941.

Sometimes discipline was required. 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 occured last Saturday night at Kincardine O'Neil when No.2 and 3 Companies men fought No.4 Company Men. The constables were very decent about it however, only insisting that it should not happen again.'

Hi Bob,
Very interested to find your web-site pertaining to the Canadian Forestry Corps' work in Scotland during the Second World War.
As I was unable to find anything listed under the No.4 Coy., I thought I could let you see what I say about them in a chapter of a book that I will shortly be publishing: see att..

For some years now I have been researching the work of the Newfoundland Overseas Forestry Unit, here at Ballater, Aberdeenshire.
You can follow our story in our web-site: ballaterforestry.org.uk

There were 7 Companies of the CFC working on Deeside between 1941 to 1945. It is a huge story and many of the young men married local girls.

Many of the men of the CFC were to find wives while in Scotland. The 4 April 1945 daily order of Company No. 4 at Cooperhill Camp recorded the marriage of eight men.
One of the men of No. 4 Company while at Glentanar Camp, was so swept away with enthusiasm for marriage that he forgot he had a wife in Canada. Convicted of bigamy in Sheriff Court, Aberdeen, he was fined twenty pounds 'which was paid'.
