John Lewes was the nephew and biographer of Lieutenant Jock Lewes (Jock Lewes: Co-Founder of the SAS, published by Pen & Sword Books, 2000). He also wrote 'A Spy After All' – a novel about love, betrayal, fanaticism and loyalty at the start of World War 2, taking inspiration for the story from his uncle’s remarkable story and based in part on the biography.
Lewes was a Flying Officer in the RAF Volunteer Reserve (VRT) and is an Honorary Member of the Welsh Guards Association.
In 2012, John Lewes opened the new SAS War Diary Display at Airborne Assault at IWM Duxford. The author held the very first SAS notebook which is currently unpublished and features the first SAS plans and jottings by Jock Lewes. A few years before, he spoke at the Unveiling of the Jock Lewes Memorial at an army base in Hereford. His Royal Highness Prince William unveiled the magnificent bronze statue of Lieutenant Jock Lewes.
