WW1 Newfoundland Forestry Battalion in Scotland
Early in WW1 the UK timber-shortage was becoming critical. Britain decided to harvest its own forests and a call went out for Empire foresters. A mixture of age, youth and wounded soldiers, unable to stay in active service, made up the Newfoundland Forestry Corps. Craigvinean hillside, in Dunkeld, is where Newfoundlanders were sent to work, on one of the oldest managed forests in Scotland. Local foresters thought the area too steep to get logs down, but the Newfoundlanders brought along their ingenuity, building a log chute and braking system. This “revelation of technology” was heralded as “marking an epoch in forest utilization” by Scottish foresters.
