Mr Carter, Land Purchasing Officer, 27th February 1946.

Dear Sir,
I am in Reciept of your letter of the 18th inst. & consider your estimate of the Fence & compensation very unfavourable for many reasons of which your are probably aware.
The fence which will have to be renewed would cost in the vicinity of 30-35 .
As you say the property occupied by the huts is small, but you have to take into consideration that I have not been able to use my property other than for dwelling since the Air Force built on it. They Broke the fences & I was deprived of any privacy as the boys were roaming my property Night and Day to say nothing of the noise always attached to such camps.
I had to get rid of my cow as I was unable to keep her in owing to the fence being broken down in places . I repaired them on sevweral occasions but it was no use. The boys in the camp anoyed the cow, they even went as far as painting different coloured patches on her, annoying her consirably. On several occasion she was almost milked out when I went to milk her in the morning.

I complained to the C.C. of the camp but recieved no satifaction, so had to sell her at a loss. The loss of the cow in its self was 10/- a week to me apart from other inconveniences. I wish to have this matter settled as soon as possible as I want to get another Cow.

Re the Huts, the value you put on them of 75 each I consider is far in excess of the value considering their condition.
Trusting you will give this matter your earlist attention. If Convenient I would like to interview you personally at your office.
Yours sincererly - G A Waddle.
