  • Leslie Comrie's direct descendants were brought up at Drummie Farm Fowlis Wester near Crieff Scotland.I am also from the same lineage of Comries and stay in Fowlis Wester.
    I was told that Leslie was a recognised expert in the field of early computing this is well documented it was said he had visited Drummie Farm in the 1940''s

    Thank you for the opportunity to contribute on the 100th anniversary of the end of the first world war and record the sacrifices made by Leslie and other Comrie New Zealanders whose names I have seen recorded at Auckland Museum.
