Civil Construction Corps: 1942-1945
The Civil Construction Corps was established in April 1942 to provide labour for war-time construction of necessary infrastructure such as airfields, barracks, roads, and many other works.
Whilst many who were unfit for war service volunteered, approximately one third of the participants were conscripted (All men from 18-60 years could be so conscripted.). Although paid civilian award rates, they worked under army-style regulation, and could be sent anywhere around the nation to work. Some served in the combat zone of New Guinea, and some died whilst serving in the CCC. Some worked under contract to the USA army.
