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.

No. 26 Coy was formed from men across the country in Valcartier Camp, Quebec, where they and the other Companies would have had 5 to 7 months military 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 train and lorries to their Scottish Camps.

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.

No. 26 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 No 30 Coy 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. No. 26 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.

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 Official 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)

No. 26 Company, Canadian Forestry Corps - Logging Operations

The No. 26 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.

No. 26 Company, Canadian Forestry Corps - Life in Scotland

Woodland Trust
In the first years of the 20th C, the woods came under the ownership of another famous philanthropist, Andrew Carnegie, founder of Carnegie Steel Company, and reputedly the second richest man in history. Unlike Dempster, Carnegie’s ownership had little effect on the woodland, although his philanthropic legacy can be seen in a number of local libraries in the area, and a handsome village hall at Clashmore.
The next major upheaval was during the second world war when the Canadian Forestry Corp felled significant portions of the site. The oakwoods were spared, as were some of the less accessible areas of Scots Pine. Signs of the loggers’ stay in the woods can still be traced, including cross bars nailed to trees to carry telegraph wires to their camp, and an area of ground where vegetation is still suppressed by a thick layer of sawdust.
Much of the felled area was probably grazed after WWII, with limited regeneration of trees in the early years. Since 1993 under Woodland Trust ownership, vigorous re-establishment of Scots pine and birch has occurred, as grazing pressure from domestic stock and deer has been reduced. A number of forest fires over the years have also affected the character of the woodland, notably a severe burn in the 1980’s on the slopes below Craig a Bealaich.

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, No.1 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."

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. 26 Coy made use of the local church buildings as well as holding religious services in the camp. There was much interaction between CFC personnel and the Scottish civilian population. Companies with a concert and a "lavish spread of food" on 3 Apr 1941. 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".

PRIVATE WINS THREE EVENTS
(By ALLAN NICKLESON)
(Canadian Press Staff Writer)
SOMEWHERE IN SCOTLAND

Sept. 9—(CP)—a fast-stepping private who broke the tape in three events featured a sports meet of the Canadian Forestry Corps held in a Scottish Park and including such competitions as sawing and chopping logs.
The triple winner was G. Crawford of Erinview, Man. He raced to victory in the 880-yard run, and the one and three-mile grinds. The high jump went to Pte. F.P. Hawkins of Armstrong, B.C., with Lieut. H.M. Russell of Vancouver second.
Pte H.C. Mallery of Kamloops, B.C., chopped through an eight-inch log in 34 seconds to win while the Schindlar brothers, L. Cpl. E.N. and Pte. K.F. from Grinrod, B.C, formed a smooth working team on a crosscut saw to beat other perspiring competitors. They cut through an 18-inch log in 21 2/5 seconds.
The 220-yard dash went to Pte. C.F. Jones of Invermere, B.C.

Dear Bob,
I am researching my husband's Canadian roots (his mother was from Halifax, Nova Scotia). I have found that his grandfather Lloyd Lionel Brown served in both WW1 & WW2. I have found a great deal of information on his WW! Service including regimental diaries covering his time in France until he was badly wounded at Vimy Ridge. He would serve with the CFC in Scotland for the rest of WW1 once he had recovered sufficiently from his wounds. In WW2 he enlisted again (I think knocking a few years off his age on enlistment to ensure he was accepted!) He served with the 26th Company CFC in Scotland at Clashmore. I wondered whether you had any more information on whether the 26th kept war diaries? Lloyd was in Scotland from June 1942 - 1943 when his health broke down and he had to return to Canada. I would be most grateful for any advice or help you might be able to offer. I am putting my findings so far into a book for my husband and his 2 brothers for Christmas.
With best wishes
(Revd Hilary Fife)

Hello Bob, have just started searching for information on the Forestry Corps as I have just found out my father was in that unit.
My father passed away 6 years ago and he never talked about his time in the army. I knew he served but there was no memorabilia in our house except some medals and he would march with the veterans on Remembrance Day.
I have just found a 24 x 18 framed certificate showing a picture of my father and it references the Forestry Division. My fathers information is:
Stanley Hope Burton
Enlisted Truro, Nova Scotia, August 19, 1941
Regiment F87629 - Forestry
DOB June 9th, 1923
It makes sense that my father was in the Forestry after reading the history as his family had a successful lumber company in Hants County, NS and later he moved to BC and was in the logging industry for many years until us kids grew up enough to move from the logging camps into a town to attend school.

Hi Bob, I'm quite interested in hearing what you know about the forestry corp. Dad wasn't much of a talker when it came to his years in the military, and unfortunately he passed a number of years ago so I no longer have the option of asking him. I do have one of his soldier's pay books, along with a copy of his military records. But none of this really gives me a true idea of what they did, and the role they played. I look forward to hearing from you Debbie

His name was Elwood Ross Merritt but he went by Ed. Born June 13, 1901 in NB, enlisted from Creston BC, passed October 25, 1980. At the time of his enlistment, he had 4 children (my dad being born in 1939) and would have been over 40 years old. He was a feller and spoke fondly of his time Scotland
This photo was taken at the family farm in Cross Creek, NB when he was on his way home to Creston after his service.
Thanks again for your website. It was so fabulous to learn more about Gramps time in the military. Keep up the important work you do.
