Drewet, Oliver
 
Oliver H. Drewet (or Drewett, but definitely not Drewer) was born in Bombay, India in 1880 to European parents, who eventually settled in New Zealand in 1884. He returned to Asansol, India to work as an engineer. It was there that he built his glider.
 
When war broke out, Drewet joined the army as part of the New Zealand Expeditionary Force and was killed in action on 8 May, 1915 at Gapa Tepe, on the Gallipoli peninsula in Turkey.
