In March 1917,Prime Minister Sir Edward Morris first entertained the idea of forming the Newfoundland Forestry Corps.A year earlier,in the summer of 1916,Canada had sent overseas a forestry contingent of approzimately 22,000 men.With the organizational assistance of Governor Sir Walter Davidson and the Newfoundland Patriotic Association,a crew of 498 foresters enlisted to work in the United Kingdom.An additional 278 failed to meet the physical requirements.The British government agreed to pay the cost of maintaining the corps.A large proportion of the Corps were from central Newfoundland,workers from the Anglo-Newfoundland Development(AND) Company in Grand Falls and the Albert E.Reed Company in Bishop's Falls.Once in the United Kingdom,the Newfoundlanders earned themselves an enviable reputation.Near the Scottish town of Craigvinean they erected a 3,000-foot timber chute to move logs over difficult terrain to the mills.The local Timber Supply Department of the Board of Trade later remarked that the chute would "long be remembered as marking an epoch in forest utilization in Scotland'.
