We do have a 'Albert Walter TYLER' in our family ;D

Frank, as quoted from your post above, did you mean that Albert Walter TYLER's occupation before the war was Motor Cab Driver? Does this eliminate him from being Sergeant TYLER?

Albert Walter Tyler would have been 46 years old in 1918, the sergeant in the film looks to be in his mid 40's to me, his occupation was " Motor Cab Driver"...

Hi, just saw this reply while logging off  ;D ;D ;D

No, I would not think it would eliminate him  :)

Talking to family it appears that our Albert Walter TYLER was never in the Army. He was described as a very small man, and had he served in the Great War this would have been remembered in the family.

So this seems to lead us back to L/2600 Edwin C TYLER of 4/Mddx.

Can we find out anything else about him?

And could someone please explain the meaning of "14 Star, BW & V...".

L/12600 WO 2 Edwin C Tyler (plain Edwin Tyler on his MIC) served on the Army Physical Training Staff after the war per the medal card.  The Army Lists show that he continued to serve in the APTS through to the 1940's  and was commissioned in 1940.

There is a Devon newspaper report about him (Western Morning News 28 August 1925) which records that he was based in Devonport before and after the war, had many friends there, and was about to leave for Aldershot, having been promoted.

Hmm looks like Edwin was probably  Edwin Charles Tyler, born Bedminster 1892. Married Ada E Smith in Devonport 1915, died in Margate 1966.

So how confident can we be that Charles Edwin TYLER is the man in the film?

I think you have transposed the forenames.  Agree with ShaunJ.

Not at all - Edwin Charles Tyler of Bedminster appears to have no Lambeth connection.  There is only a MIC card for Edwin C Taylor of the Middx then APT staff hence no evidence connecting him to Lambeth.

My feeling is that, as with so many others, it would only be the service record which would resolve this but as far as I can see, none of the few service records that still survive for Tylers have a Lambeth connection.

That said, perhaps the home-coming also got a write up in a newspaper local to Lambeth?  I find nothing in the FindMyPast newspapers but there are other avenues.
