1. The Oommanding Officer, U. S. Army Forces Central Canada will
be charged with the practical application of the decisions of War

2. Advance planning and an early determination of essential con­
siderations, as indicated on the attached paper, are essential to an
orderly and rapid evacuation and transfer of supplies, equipment and
materials.
3. As considerable detailed work is involved, and as the existing
Troop Basis does not provide sufficient experienced personnel for this
additional task, it is imperative that increased officer and enlisted
personnel be provided.
4. Therefore, it is requested that the following personnel be
assigned, attached, or placed on temporary duty with the Headquarters,
. U. S. Army Forces Central Canada, innipeg, Canada, for a sufficient period
of time to accomplish the planning and practical disposition of supplies,
materials and equipment:

Four (4) Enlisted men
5. The above personnel must be exceptionally well qualified in the
problem in question.

UNITED STATES ARMY FORCES, CENTRAL CANADA
Winnipeg, Canada
D.c..'TERMINATION OF ESSENTIAL CONSIDERATIOiIJS IN CONNECTION WITH
THE FORMULATION OF AN EVACU'TION PLAN i}ND APPLIC TION THEREOF
1. In the preparation of plans for t he eventual evacuation and transfer
of bases and installations unde r the command United States Army Forces, Central
Canada, it has become apparent that a number of essential considerations must be
clarified before plans can be completed. Unless such considerations are properly
clarified and incorporated into a workable plan prior to actual evacuation and
transfer, unnecessary delay and confusion will result.
2. Constant reference is made in documents of the Permanent Joint Board
on Defense and in Exchange of Notes between Canada and the United States of
America to "movable and immovable" defense installations. These terms have
never been defined to the extent where application is possible. Unless this is
done they can become the source of considerable controversy when dealing with
the concrete rather than with the abstract.
3. Concern is not centered primarily on Real Property related to defense
installations. Real Property as such constitutes no serious problem in terms of
"movable" and "immovable". Howver, when considered in relation to equipment
and facilities which constitute a more or less integral or fixed part of real
property the problem becomes more ccmplex.
4. Therefore, the definitions for "movable
fl
and f1immovable" must be deter­
mined in terms suitable to practical application. It is realized that initially
these terms must be conceived in the broad sense. This will provide a point
of departure for an initial working basis. Matters subsequently requiring further
clarification will have to be considered individually in each instance.
5. Examples of potential controversy include teletype equipnent such as
carrier equipment and printers, small diesel generators, hospital equipment
including x-ray machi ne s ani other inst allations, weather instrument s and instal­
lations, radio equipment and installations, control tower equipment, and laundry
and dry-cleaning equipment. The foregoing are indicative of numerous considera­
tions to be determined as regards "movable" and "immovable."
6. The next determination is that pertaining to the disposition of all
supplies, equipment and materials on hand in this command. This problem
appears to fall in the categories listed below and in order of priority:
a. Strategic supplies, equipment and materials required by the United
States for use at home or abroad. The decision as to what constitutes
essential strategic items should be the responsibility of the War
Department.
b. Supplies, equipment and materials whi ch the Canadian Government
desires to retain for the continued operation, maintenance, and
administration of installations purchased. This should be deter­
mined by the RCAP, Department of Transport, Department of Mines
and Resources and othe ental agencies.
I : • _ ) (.,' t
J ." . "\ i'
. ');


c. Contractor's supplies, equipment and materials still on hand in the
command and which are now the property of the War Department. This
is a matter for the Corps of Engineers, United States Army.
d. Standard United States Army supplies, equipment and materials exclus­
ive of those referred to in paragraph 6, sub-paragraphs a and b,above
It is assumed that all in this category will be returned to the
United States.
e. Supplies, equipment and materials exclusive of those referred to
sub-paragraphs a, b, c and d, above,which for logical reasons could
be turned over to the Crown Wartime Assets Board for sale to civilian
sources. This is a joint Canada-United States matter.
f. Unserviceable supplies, equipment and materials. This is
covered by existing laws and regulations.
g. Serviceable .supplies , equipment and materials which for
reasons of economy or for other reasons should not be returned
to the United States and which cannot be disposed of under
a, b, c, d, and e above. Authority for destruction rests
with the War Department.
7. The determination of items for disposition under 6.b. above
will probably constitute the major problem. The Canadian agencies taking over
the various bases and installations will desire to retain by purchase numerous
items now available for purposes of'operation; maintenance and administration.
Examples include such items as barrack stoves; kitchen ranges; office furniture
and equipment; road maintenance equipment; trucks; tractors; snow removal equip­
ment; fuel oil for stoves, aircraft, automotive equipment and diesels; coal;
and subsistence •
8. As far as can be determined, no agreement exists between Canada and
The United States of America respecting Stations. Action on this
matter is indicated as supplies, equipment and materials are involved.
9. Anbther determination involves the designation and disposition of ali
Real Property not specifically provided for in Exchange of (June 23 and
27, 1944) between Canada and·the United States of America constituting an
agreement respecting the payment of expenditures on defense installations in Canada
and in Labrador.
10. Advance planning is essential to an orderly ani rapid evacuation and
transfer. Weather, tr&nsport and morale are important factors to be considered.
Therefore, early determination of essential considerations is necessary for
the formulation of suitable plans. As jdnt interest is involved, concerted
action by agencies of Canada and the United States is indicated. For obvious
reasons the ddetermination of considerations should not be the responsibility of
a single individual.
RESTRICTED


li. The Commanding Officer, United states Army Forces, Central Canada,
will be 'charged with the practical application of the decisions of the Permanent
Joint Board on Defense relative to transfer of bases and installations to
Canada. Accomplishment can best be obtained by an early assignment of a small
group of Canadian and United states specialists to the Headquarters, United states
Army Forces, At lvinnipeg for joint action on matters outlined in paragraph 6
above regardless of the ultimate date transfer is to be effected. Just prior
to final transfer, the Canadian Government and the United states Government
should each appoint one qualified appraiser whose joint duty it will be to
appraise supplies, equipment and materials which the Canadian Government desires
to retain, in order to determine the fair value thereof at the time and place
of appraisal.

the ac complishment of this mission, action will be taken to assign

5. It is apparent that the mission cannot be accomplished
within the period covered by orders and as one of the officer's time
expires the end of February action is indicated.
6. It is essential that the personnel in question be assigned
in addition to the personnel provided by the Troop Basis Table as
the limited number of personnel assigned this command is not suffi­
cient for the additional specialized project confronting us.
7. Upon completion of mission personnel will be reported to
