Frank Benn had a small block consisting of five acres in the Tamworth Land District. He wrote to the Land Settlement Branch on 31 March 1921, stating that he needed his advance so that he could go in for raising pigs. To obtain his advance, he was told that he had to be in occupation of a home maintenance area. In May he asked that his application for a loan be held up as ‘he had given up the lease and trying to get a block in this district’
The file ends with no indication of what happened.
