Arthur Malcolm Drewry, regimental no. 3036978, file loc. 2667-4;
Henry Brown Drewry, regimental no. 434958, file loc. 2667-8;

The city (or town) of Drewry is located in Monroe County, Alabama.
Drewry Lake is in the South Cariboo area of British Columbia
Drewry's Bluff is in Virginia.
Interestingly the Fort at Drewry's Bluff, on the James River protecting Richmond, was known as Fort Darling. Is this coincidence or a reference back to the original meaning of the word drewry/druery.
