He was a respected contributor to ME in the '60s/ '70s. Mainly known for very detailed constructional series for 1.5" scale Allchin TE. At the time of his death he was describing a Marshal(?) portable engine. I think that he acted as a ME Exhibition juudge for road vehicles.
AFAIK he was a schoolteacher by profession, lived in Sheffield area.

There is a brief obituary of W. J. Hughes by Martin Evans in the Model Engineer Volume 143 No 3565 15-31 July 1977 and a bit fuller appreciation by Arnold Throp (also from Sheffield) in the next issue No 3566 5-18 August 1977.
W.J. Hughes also wrote under the nom de plume of 'Northener'
