See John Drewry's obituary in The Scotsman (but read it with a grain of salt).

In a masterly piece of understatement, the citation by Aberdeen Branch supporting the award of the Society’s Scroll of Honour to John in 1999 begins:
»John is recognised world-wide as a deviser of dances and several of his dances have been published by the Society«. This, however, is typical of John’s own modesty.

He was born 14 July 1923 in Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire. He died aged 90 on 18 June 2014 in Aberdeen.
