I received this kind message of support from a former Comrie resident this afternoon:
From: Julia Battison( nee Arthur)
My sister Mrs Ethel Thompson rang me to tell me about the flooding in the village and if I wanted to view the full extent of the flooding I should look up the Comrie website and look at the photos. After viewing the photos I was quite shocked to see Comrie under so much water, especialy the Glebe where I was born. The last time I remember the rivers bursting their banks, was 61 years ago when I was 6 years old as we could not go to school for three days. I emailed Olive and Jim McIntyre who were also born in the village and now live in Canada, they too were very shocked to see Comrie under so much water so on behalf of Olive and Jim in Canada and myself from Darwin, Northern Territory of Australia we say good luck with the clean up and our thoughts are with all in the village, God Bless and stay safe.
