Does any one know of any online sites which hold records of those Newfoundlanders who worked in Scotland as lumberjacks during the second world war

Hi there

At this link, scroll down to Newfoundland Regiment History. There seems to be something that might be related to your query about the NL lumberjacks under NL Overseas Forestry Unit ( couple of clicks in).

Edited to add: there are a number of links to various NL Archives within this link that may hold records. Newfoundland was not part of Canada until 1949 so I don't know if the Canadian Archives would hold anything.

And....not sure if you have seen this website with general info? And some names here and there.
