Biography

Lieutenant HW Hewitt is known only from a set of of Part II Orders which list him as part of the Coleshill Staff. He was a specialist quartermaster and so presumably was working in this role, perhaps as DAQMS. 

His photo is courtesy of the 2nd Battalion Coldstream Guards 1939-1945 Facebook Page. It was taken a year after the orders, after Auxiliary Units had been stood down and once he was back with the Coldstream Guards.
