Some History...
The Canadian Forestry Corps was created on the 14th of  Nov 1916. They sailed for England in May of 1917. Known as the Canadian Forestry Battalion, they became part of the Canadian Forestry Corps.The WWI era badge of the Canadian Forestry Corps consists of a circle, with a beaver on top, superimposed on a pair of crossed axes, with the text "Canadian Forestry Corps" around the edge. At the center of the circle is a maple leaf with a King's Crown. 220px-NLS_Haig_-_Inspecting_the_work_of_

The Canadian Forestry Corps was disbanded in 1920. It was reformed in 1940 then disbanded again in 1945. They served much the same function as in WWI. It is interesting to  note that on the Canadian National War Memorial in Ottawa there is a statue figure of a member of the Canadian Forestry Corps near the back of the memorial. The CFC is largely forgotten today but played an important role in the eventual Allied victories in World War I.
