Warren Lewis

Major Warren Hamilton "Warnie" Lewis (16 June, 18959 April, 1973), also known as W.H. Lewis, was a soldier and historian, and brother of the British writer and academic C.S. Lewis. Warren Lewis was a supply officer in the British army during and after World War I. After retiring in 1932 to live with his brother in Oxford, he was one of the founding members of the Inklings. He wrote on French history.

He served as his brother's secretary for the later years of C.S. Lewis's life. In order to protect him from annoying fan phonecalls, he repeatedly answered "Oxford Sewage Disposal Unit" until the caller went away.[1]
