As many of you will know, John Drewry is in a nursing home in Aberdeen.
He's being well looked after and has quite a number of visitors, all things

I, along with another two of John's friends, am gathering material which we
hope will become a John Drewry archive in either the Special Collections at
the University or in the Aberdeen City Archives. (John used to work first in
the Bio-Chemistry Dept and latterly in the Computing Department of the

We have ensured that there are copies of all the John Drewry books and
leaflet/sheet dances we have gathered in the RSCDS archives at Coates

The ones on your list, Christine, which I don't seem to have copies of are:

The Bridges of Sighs
Brimmond (It's a hill near John's home in Bankhead)
Carlisle House - could this be Carlisle Castle, which is in the Rondel
Fiddler on the Capstan
Glowerin' Coo.

If you could hold onto copies of these until we've had time to do a fuller
check that would be great.

I'll get back to you as soon as I can.

loath to throw these away, Knowing that many of his books are now difficult
to get hold of, so I have listed the first half of them below. If anyone is
interested in one or all of them I am happy to post them out for the cost of
the postage.
