The Canadian Forestry Corps; Its Inception, Development and Achievements (Classic Reprint): Prepared by Request of Sir Albert H. Stanley, by C. W. Bird and J. B. Davies


Charles Wesley Libri


Excerpt from The Canadian Forestry Corps; Its Inception, Development and Achievements More, please The subsequent history of the Canadians may be summarised by repeating More More and More. Events marched very rapidly, and as the prospects of finishing the War within a relatively Short time diminished, so did the demand grow for the services of the Canadians to increase home production and assist in saving tonnage. Hardly had the Canadians arrived in England when Lord Kitchener, realising their value, suggested that 500 of them should at once be transferred to France, with another 500 to follow, in order to fell and convert certain forests which the French Government had placed at British disposal. Lord Kitchener wrote personally on the 12th May, 1916, to the above effect to Lord Selborne (who was at that time at the head of the Board of Agriculture, and therefore of the home-grown Timber Committee), but Lord Selborne was unwilling to give up any of the Canadians who had so far arrived. German prisoners who had been offered to the Committee were by no means a substitute, apart from the disorganisation which would have resulted from the upsetting of the plans for accommodating the Canadians in Britain. Shortly before that, it had been proposed to increase the number of Canadians to and it was now suggested to the War Office that the extra men who were expected might be devoted to work in France as soon as they arrived, and that more men should be recruited from Canada for work in France if necessary.
