RAFTING OPERATIONS BY NO. 1 CANADIAN SPECIAL FORESTRY SECTION
9. During the later stages of the planning operations for opening a Second Front in North-West Europe the problem of transporting timber across the Channel for the use of Allied Engineer units had presented itself. Due to the overall shortage, ship bottoms could not be allocated for this purpose, so the possibility of towing long piling across the Channel was investigated. Appearing before a meeting of representatives from the War Office, E.T.O.U.S.A. and the Ministry of Supply in the latter part of February 1944,Lt.-Col. E.P. Burchett, then Assistant Director of Timber Operations C.F.C., stated his belief that such a project was feasible and agreed to draw up the necessary plans for the undertaking (W.D., H.Q. C.F.C.: February 1945, Appx 2, Memo of Operations carried out by the Canadian Forestry Corps for the War Office and E.T.O.U.S.A. in rafting of piling and other work in preparation for and during the Invasion of France between 4 March and 11 October 1944).

10. An official request for the use of a detachment of the Canadian Forestry Corps to raft 22,000 pieces of round timber was made subsequently by the War Office to C.M.J.Q., and on 25 Feb General Montague informed Lt.-Col. Burchett that the project had been given official approval. On 28 Feb the latter therefore attended a second conference at which plans were made for a detachment of C.F.C. personnel to proceed to each of the ports of Southampton and Barry (south west of Cardiff on the Bristol Channel). Their duties would be to construct rafts of round timber, unload and store lumber delivered by rail from inland depots and supervise the construction of square timber rafts. The responsibility of the C.F.C. was to end, however, once the rafts were completed. Lt.-Col. Burchett visited both ports within the next few days and,after selecting work sites, made all the necessary arrangements with the Naval, Harbour and Port Authorities.

11. On 7 Mar Major R.T. Colquhoun arrived at Southampton with an initial detachment to commence operations. Due to the inability of the Royal Engineers to construct square timber rafts, as had been originally planned, this additional task was given to the Canadian Foresters. Consequently, considerably more personnel were required for the task. Thus the W.E.authorized on 9 Mar for No. 1 Canadian Special Forestry Section made provision for a total of six officers and 134 other ranks, 44 of whom were to be tradesmen. By 21 Apr the Section was at full strength and work at Southampton and Barry was progressing with the maximum of effort.

12. The square timber rafts constructed at both ports varied in size according to the sizes and lengths of the timbers, "running from 70,000 f.b.m.(say 35 standards) to 90,000 f.b.m. (say 45 standards)." (Ibid.) The procedure used at Southampton was to build the first two layers on a ramp on shore; the embryo raft was then launched and completed in the water. At Barry, on the other had, a heavy ramp was built on shore, upon which two rafts could be constructed at a time; the finished rafts were then launched. The round timber rafts consisted of Douglas Fir peeled timbers, (18" butts and 4 1/2" tops, 60 to 120 ft in length) and were constructed to a design somewhat similar to the "Davis Raft" which was used extensively in Pacific Coast lumbering operations. The following procedure was used: Roughly, a cradle was made of approximately one sixth of the logs to be rafted, all butts at one end, held together by a weave, over and under each timber, of 3" Cir. S.W.R. at intervals. On this was loaded the balance of the timbers reinforced by cross straps through the raft, the whole being wrapped and held together by approximately 6 wraps of 3" Cir. S.W.R. The rafts had a towing bridle fore (butt-end) and a hook on bridle aft, each running through the rafts, and when under tow, so affixed, that all wrappings tightened. The bridles were 3-1/2" Cir. S.W.R. (Ibid).

13. The design and construction of all rafts was sound and no timber, either round or square, was lost through faulty construction. Considerable rough weather was encountered by the rafts at sea, particularly those from Barry which had to round Land's End, but the tugs were able to move them safely at speeds up to eight knots.

14. In addition to the construction of the rafts, personnel of the detachments found themselves engaged in operating cranes, pile drivers and tungs and in the unloading of lumber brought by ship or rail to Southampton and Barry. During the spring and summer of 1944 three American ships were unloaded at the former port and five at the latter by C.F.C. personnel, while an average of 100-300 tons of lumber arrived by rail every day from inland points.

15. On 20 Aug work was curtailed on the project, owing to the satisfactory turn taken by the Normandy campaign which now made it more economical to obtain future timber needs from the forests of Normandy where C.F.C. Companies were by this time at work (see para 17). Then on 31 aug the rafting operations were brought to a close, there being sufficient rafts awaiting despatch to care for current operational needs. During these months 50 square timber and 7 round timber rafts had been built at Southampton while 27 square and 47 round timber rafts had been constructed by Barry.

16. On 21 Aug, with the work then nearing completion, Brigadier Sir Bruce White, Director of Ports at the War Office, approached Colonel R.D. Roe, now commanding the C.F.C., with a request that one officer and 65 other ranks of this Section should be put to work constructing A.A. gun towers in the Thames Estuary to complete the defences of London against the flying bomb attacks. After due consideration this project met the approval of C.M.H.Q. but the further request that the remainder of No. 1 Canadian Special Forestry Section be employed on special test construction work in connection with forthcoming British operations in Burma was not found acceptable (Ibid.)the Barry Detachment duly arrived in London to undertake the construction of gun towers but the capture of the flying-bomb sites in the Pas de Calais area by troops of the First Canadian Army had by then rendered such construction no longer necessary. The project was therefore dropped (Ibid. See also C.M.H.Q. file 1/Org CFC/1: D.S.D. War Office to C.M.H.Q., 15 Sep 44). On 13 Sep, however, one officer and 20 other ranks were despatched to Dover to construct a special "V" trestling structure for loading locomotives and trucks on ships, in place of one which had been destroyed by enemy shellfire from across the Straits. These men had been picked especially for the job and warned that, although it would most likely involve working under enemy shell fire, the project had a top priority. Work commenced on 14 Sep and on the following day the Canadian Foresters were subjected to their first shelling with 32 rounds falling in the harbour area were they were working. On 20 and 22 Sep shelling was continued and then, on 26-27 Sep, it became quite heavy. Only one and a half hours were lost through enemy shell fire, however, and the job was completed on the last day of the month. This party then returned to London and by 11 Oct had rejoined the remainder of the Section in Scotland. The following day No. 1 Canadian Special Forestry Section was disbanded and the personnel then absorbed into the Reinforcement Section, C.F.C. at Blar Atholl.

On 8 March 1944, three officers and 60 other ranks of the CFC departed for Southampton at the request of the War Office to assemble American piling timber into Davis rafts for transport to the Normandy coast. Source NAC, RG24, Vol. 16,411 Fifty square rafts and seven round timber rafts were assembled at Southampton and an additional twenty-seven and forty-seven respectively at Barry, Cornwall, which subsequently were towed across the Channel successfully by tugs. Source - NAC, RG24, Vol. 16,412 The square rafts varied in size from 70,000 FBM TO 90,000 FBM, with each single timber doweled to its neighbor and all held together by 8 ft. bolts, on a 5 in. towing cable. The round rafts’ construction was similar to that of the Davis rafts of the B.C. Pacific coast, and consisted of about 180 peeled round timbers of Douglas fir with 18in. butts, 4 ½ in. tops, and 60-120 ft. length.

The Canadian Forestry Corps' first task in connection with the North-West Europe campaign was curiously reminiscent of an earlier day in Canada. Lumber would be required on the Continent for the use of the invading force, but shipping could not be spared to carry it. Lt.-Col. E. P. Burchett, Assistant Director of Timber Operations, C.F.C., affirmed his belief that it would be practicable to tow long timbers across the Channel in the form of rafts. The idea was approved, and in March 1944 No. 1 Special Forestry Section, C.F.C., began work on raft construction at Southampton and Barry (on the Bristol Channel). Before the project was wound up in August-by which time it was possible to cut timber on the Continent-the Canadians had built 77 square timber rafts and 54 of round timber. The project was a success. The rafts met some rough weather at sea, particularly those from Barry which had to round Land's End, but tugs were able to move them safely at speeds up to eight knots.

In February, 1944, at the request of the War Office, the Canadian Forestry Corps undertook the design and construction of rafts of large size piling and square timber for safe towing from the U.K. to France for use in construction of harbour installations and bridging.
Lt. Col. E.P. Burchett was placed in complete charge of this technical operation, being responsible for selecting suitable sites, having regard to tides, winds, etc., design of rafts and general supervision of construction.
Due to the energy, initiative and skilful direction of this officer, this work, comprising the rafting of 22,000 large round piles (up to 120 ft. in length) was successfully completed ahead of schedule without the loss of a single piece of timber. The operation enabled this essential material to be available on the Continent when required and released a large volume of shipping for other purposes.
