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.

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.

Hi Rob
My father-in-law, Marvin McLennan (b. 1917, d. 1977) served with the 25th Co. CFC from Mar 1942-Aug 1944 at the Mar Lodge camp in Braemar, Scotland. We have numerous photos to share that Marvin took, and we have visited the site twice. My husband Andy has recently been contacted by someone in Scotland researching the CFC's years at Mar Lodge, and area.
After the Mar Lodge camp was closed, Marvin spent from August '44 to July '45 in NW Europe (Belgium, France & Germany) with the 25th, and then transferred to the 16th Co. from Aug '45 to Nov '45, then to the SDS Canadian Army O/S until his discharge in Dec. 1946. Marvin returned home to Dorset Ontario, where he continued as a forester, guide and trapper (and sometimes handyman )until his early death of cancer at age 59 in 1977.
We have Marvin's war records from Library and Archives Canada, and would appreciate getting a copy of the Sawdust Fusiliers.

No.25 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. They were 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. Their campsite was near completion by civilian contractors and the 25th was thus to proceed directly on arrival, from the Clyde ports to their camp.
The majority of companies (18 of 30) remained at the same camp throughout their entire time in Scotland. The No. 25 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.

No. 25 Company, Canadian Forestry Corps - Logging Operations

Canadian Bridge over River Dee
Courtesy of Melanie McLennan

The "Canadian Bridge" constructed by No. 25 Company over the River Dee above Inverey was opened to traffic on
27 August 1942. It remained a well known local feature until relatively recently when demolished after extensive flood damage

No.25 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.

25 Coy, Canadian Forestry Corps at Mar Lodge, Braemar.
Of all the camps, Coy.No.25's impact on the landscape is the most obvious today. The south facing slopes behind Mar Lodge that the loggers cleared have never been replanted and the bleached stumps lend a poignant truth to the often repeated:
"The Canadians Cut Down All Our Trees!"
The men of Coy.No.25 the Canadian Forestry Corps were at Mar Lodge a scant two years, on 14th June 1944 they left for operations in North West Europe.
Today they are remembered as the guys that straightened the Linn O'Dee road with their bulldozers to reduce the trucks' running time to Ballater station.
In autumn the same bulldozers damned the Luie burn to collect the stranded flapping salmon.
In the hard winter of 1942 they trucked in hay to feed the starving deer that invaded their camp and opened the county main roads with their snow ploughs, and we must not forget the Canadian bulldozer driver who volunteered one stormy Saturday to clear the Banchory streets of snow. Legend has it that all the pubs in town offered hospitality to the operator, and it was liberally accepted; when the thaw came it was discovered that all the kerb stones in the High Street had been dozed away.

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 25 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. No. 25 Company turned out its pipe band to play for Bremar school children at their picnics and games, for example. 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 Scottish regiments frequently entertained the Canadian Forestry Corps with piping and dancing displays. No. 25 Company of the Mar Lodge Camp in the Cairngorms demonstrated that such skills were not unique to the host country by turning out its own pipe band from time to time. Cordial friendships developed with several other units in the Highlands, such as the Black Watch based at Banchory, the Lovat Scouts at Balmoral Castle, and the Norwegians based at Tain and Dornoch.

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 the other five companies were on their way to Belgium in October 1944. The first group 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.
