Biography / Administrative history

Authorised in October 1916 under the command of Lieutenant-Colonel Alexander McDougall, the CFC was composed of companies, each of which came under one of the six district headquarters in Great Britain or one of the eight district headquarters in France. Companies in France were numbered below 100. The CFC in France came under the British Expeditionary Force, Director of Works until March 1917 when a Directorate of Forestry was created. Districts in France were organised into Central, Bordeaux, and Jura Groups. The Corps headquarters was established at Paris-Plage, near Boulogne.

Most CFC Companies were engaged in general forestry operations - including the making of pit props, railway sleepers, saw logs and axe handles - but some cleared, drained, levelled and graded sites for aerodromes, both in England and in France.
