Can anyone identify the unit or organisation of the following casualty buried in an official war grave in Les Baraques Military Cemetery, Sangatte?

J.H.DONEGAR A.D.E.S.W. Calais Died 15.08.20 Grave 8.F.11

I presume he was a member of one of the recognised civilian organisations who qualified for war grave status but I have been unable to identify the meaning of the initials A.D.E.S.W.

There is another such qualifying civilian buried nearby who was an employee of the Asiatic Petroleum Co. Ltd.
