This presentation will look at the Canadian men in camps in France and the U.K., who felled and processed 75% of the timber needed by Allied Armies for the Western Front. And fighting with a pick and a rifle, Pioneers served alongside the Infantry in many battles. Canadian railwaymen handled 100% of the light gauge and 60% of broad gauge railroad construction in France and Flanders.
Peter Broznitsky is Chairman of the Western Front Association - Pacific Coast Branch
