Have you looked on the Drill Hall Project website? You may be lucky.

If it isn't there and you go on to find out about it's past whereabouts the Project would be very appreciative if you passed on everything you do discover.

There was no Drill Hall at Barrow. It being only a village it's Volunteer later TF unit was a detachment from one of the Companies based at Bury St. Edmunds, in 1908 there were 24 men of the left half of 'E' Coy, 5th Suffolks. The Detachment used what was known as a Drill Station where they met for Drill etc. Drill Stations where often Village Halls or other large buildings, including Public Houses. Sorry I can't help with a specific location for Barrow.
