  • Percy 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 wondered if Percy had visited his cousins at Fowlis Wester when he arrived in Glasgow prior to being sent to the front in 1917?
    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 Percy and other Comrie New Zealanders whose names I have seen recorded at Auckland Museum.
