"Lieutenant Colonel Walter Haweis James (9 July 1847- 13 January 1927) was an army officer and politician.

The youngest son of H C James and his wife Elizabeth Jane née Page, he was educated privately before entering the Royal Military Academy, Woolwich. He was admitted to the Corps of Royal Engineers as a lieutenant in July 1867. In 1871 he was seconded to the Public Works Department of India. Promoted to captain in 1879, he served served in the Intelligence Department of the War Office, and as Deputy Assistant Quartermaster General during the Anglo-Zulu War. He retired from the army in 1880, and entered business as a civil service and army tutor. He also entered politics, unsuccessfully contesting the parliamentary seat of St Pancras West for the Conservative Party at the 1885 general election.

When the first elections to the London County Council were held in January 1889, James was elected as a councillor for Kensington South, taking his seat as a member of the minority Moderate Party, which was allied to the Conservatives. Re-elected in 1892, he became a whip for the Moderates. He resigned his seat on 31 January 1893. He continued his political and local government activities as chairman of the Kensington Public Libraries and Museums Committee and as a member of the Grand Council of the Primrose League.

In 1901 he was recalled from the reserve of officers and promoted to major. He was given the post of Permanent Under-Secretary at the War Office. He was promoted to lieutenant-colonel in 1903.
With the outbreak of the First World War in 1914 he was recalled to active service as a staff officer in the Censor’s Department. In May 1918 he retired, having the compulsory age limit of 70.
James was an author of military history: he published Modern Strategy and The Campaign of 1815. He also wrote numerous articles for magazines and journals, and assisted in the preparation of The Times history of the First World War. James died in an Ealing nursing home in 1927, aged 79. He was cremated at Golders Green Crematorium
