Here is an extract from a document that I saved some time ago...
On 17th December 1920 the Polish Diet (Sejm) passed the law endowing
some soldiers of merit with land in the country's Eastern Marches....
.....The Ministry of Agriculture, Central Land Office (Gl6wny Urzad
Ziemski) and the Ministry of Defense were vested with responsibility
to implement the 17th December 1920 law.
