Just inquiring to see if anyone knows about land taken for the war effort and how if any compensation should have been offered after the war.

From speaking with local landowners to me; the land was bought quite cheaply on compulsory purchase and in some instances the land owners were only given 10 days notice! After the war the land owners had first refusal to buy back the land, but at the modern 'going rate', which was significantly higher than what the land was purchased for. In many instances the landowners could not to afford to buy the land back, and so the land went to auction, being bought by neighbouring farmers, which lead to a lot of ill feeling and a breakdown in relationships between adjoining farms.
