Additional Information

His father, Sir Henry Lewis was a prominent Calvinistic Methodist in North Wales and played a significant role in securing the site in Bangor for the University College of North Wales. Before the First World War, Lewis fought in the Philippines War and the Boer War and when the war began he joined the Seinde horse regiment and travelled to India in 1914. During the war, Lewis served in India, France and Iraq as a Lieutenant with the Indian Army Reserve of Officers and the 13th Duke of Connaught's Own Lancers (Watson's Horse).
