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. 8 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.

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. 8 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 majority of companies (18 of 30) remained at the same camp throughout their entire time in Scotland. The No. 8 Coy was one of the companies that stayed in one camp until it was time to prepare to get ready to go over to the mainland

The No. 8 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 time lag between arrival at the camps and start of logging or of milling operations varied considerably between companies - the range of the former was anything from one day to a maximum of 97, and the latter from three days to a maximum of 180. No. 8 Company not only found conditions at South Cawdor Camp unsatisfactory but basic tools also lacking: Examination of the equipment on hand revealed we had axe handles but no axes, crosscut saws but no handles, Swedish saw frames but no saws; no picks, axes or shovels, and no equipment to work with.
Estate owners were interested visitors to the scene, newspaper correspondents wrote up glowing accounts following visits, and companies operations were on the itineraries of touring officials and VIP'S. The companies involved in some of these visits found that the visits did not help normal operations. No. 8 Company which had been dismayed by the poor condition of Cawdor South Camp on its arrival 1 March 1942, noted that by the end of April there had been "an average of 34 official visitors per week to the Camp during the month, yet no one has ever volunteered any assistance for equipment or supplies nor has any ordinary routine been adjusted.
Serious medical cases were sent on to local hospitals. The number of hospitals had been expanded by conversion of many large residences and castles to meet the wartime emergency. In at least one case an entire company faced the possibility of coming down with sickness - the poor water supply conditions initially at Cawdor South Camp resulted in its condemnation of the MO and an outbreak of typhoid in No. 8 Company, but this was unusual.

There was much interaction between CFC personnel and the Scottish civilian population. The Young Ladies' Guild of the Old Parish Church welcomed all ranks of No. 1 and No. 8 Companies with a concert and a "lavish spread of food" on 3 Apr 1941.
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.
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 the earlier period a shortage of weapons and ammunition proved frustrating, e.g. one company waited a month after arrival before receiving its first arms and then these consisted of a total of 48 Lee-Enfield rifles and only 100 rounds of ammunition.

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.
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.
CFC companies transported and sold scrap wood from the mills to the public for fuel, at prices and delivery charges fixed by the Ministry of Supply. At times some scrap wood "mysteriously`` fell from lorries to land beside individual homes in financial need.
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."
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. 8 Company made use of the local church buildings as well as holding religious services in the camp.
Many of the men were of Scottish origin and to them it was coming home event. Many of the soldiers of the Canadian Forestry Corps married local Scottish lassies.
At the end ten of the companies went to the mainland in the Invasion of Normandy, to cut timber there. Ten companies stayed in Scotland to work at their saw mills. Ten companies were disbanded and went back to Canada to form units to cut fuel wood. The No. 8 Coy was one of the Companies that went back to Canada. The companies that went back were No. 2, 3, 7, 8, 12, 17, 21, 23, 26 and 29. However a lot of men were transferred from one company depending on where that soldier was needed at this time. Also about 700 men were transferred to other units as well.
The news came to No. 8 Company at South Cawdor Camp on 28 September 1943 as a "BOMBSHELL - great upset due to the fact that word has been received that this company is to cease operations immediately as proceeding back to Canada." Next day found the Company very upset over the news received last night. Great speculation as to who are to go and who will remain.

Private Perle 'Bruce' Tucker was transferred from No. 28 Coy to No. 8 Coy which was one
of the 10 companies that were transferred to Canada to form fuel wood cutting units.

Thanks for sending the photo
In the photo you just sent that is labelled "photo of Ottawa, Ontario contingent before departure overseas.jpg" my grandfather Pte. William Belleville (C63466) is in the front row sitting to the immediate left of the drummer.
After serving with CFC Company 8th he was transferred to the Perth Regiment B company (infantry). He went on to serve in Italy and France.
I have included two photos
1) "WilliamBelleville(C63466).jpg" is an individual photo of him in his battle dress uniform.
2) "WilliamBelleville_join_reason.jpg" is taken from his war records when asked why he joined the Canadian Army.
In the future I hope to get more photos (and hopefully stories) from my relatives.
Thanks again,- Rick Belleville

Hi Bob!
My name is Pascal Auger and I am from Oka Quιbec. I am collecting military items for more than 20 years.
Recently I found a Canadian Forestry Corps Service Dress that belong to Lieutenant Alfred A. Lavigne. So I start seaching the net for info on that guy and I found your page on the C.F.C. WOW! I was so happy. The only thing that I can found on Lt Lavigne is that he served with the 8th Coy, district 3, Camp 16 in Cawdor ( South Inchyette) Scotland. So do you think you could find more info on Lt Lavigne? Like where is was born, is military path, etc...?
Thank you for your help.
Pascal

Hi Robert,
My father (Alonzo (Lonnie) H. Gervais who was a member (private) of No. 8th Company, Canadian Forestry Corps. I have copy of photo taken in Scotland August 1941 of the 8th Company. It was attached to a company card "With Best Wishes for Christmas and the New Year".
Unfortunately the photo is approximately 14 inches long by 3.5 inches wide (too large for me to scan). Will arrange to have it digitized, cleaned up and posted here asap. In meantime I'm attaching copy of photo of Ottawa, Ontario contingent before departure overseas. Alonzo (Lonnie) is sitting (left to right) 8th in 2nd row.
