Weird Vintage Untitled Document

Paul Bunyan had nothing on the British Lumberjills of WW2.

The Lumberjills were drafted in at the outbreak of War to ensure Britain had timber for it’s roaring industry. Home-produced timber was crucial for aircraft and railway construction, ship-building, charcoal for explosives and gas mask filters, not to mention everyday uses such as packaging and coffins. Some were actually stationed in forest huts, others stayed with locals. The hours were long, and in all weathers. As servicemen were stationed nearby, they often met at dances and many moved to Canada after the war with their sweethearts.
