Unsuccessful Applicants

There were many returned soldiers who were unsuccessful in their applications for Soldier Settlement blocks in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT). Lists of these men are found on a variety of files and have been compiled below.

File 'TL120: Consolidated lease Blocks 38 City & 110F Woden - Lessee Hugh Read transfer to J. W. Butt 24/1/47' contains copies of the lease applications for Woden Blocks 110F and 110H. These blocks were released during the first round of the Soldier Settlement Scheme in the FCT with James Grady being assigned the leases in 1920. PDF scans for several unsuccessful applications for Woden Block 110H are included below.

However, many of the applicants listed below were later successful in leasing other Soldier Settlement blocks in the FCT. Links have been provided against those applicants so you can read their stories.
