Wing Commander Sir Archibald William Henry James, MC (September 1893 – 5 May 1980) was a British Conservative Party politician and Royal Air Force pioneer. Born in Paddington, London, the son of H. A. James of Herstmonceux Place, East Sussex, he was educated at Eton and Trinity College, Cambridge. He married twice, to Bridget Guthrie (1919), with whom he had one son, David, and one daughter, Moira, whose married name became Ismay Cheape; and to Eugenia Stirling (1940), with whom he had two sons. From 1914 to 1926 he served with the 3rd Hussars, the Royal Flying Corps and the Royal Air Force, rising to the rank of wing commander.
