It looks to me like the opening frames are in Lambeth Walk itself (a shopping street), and then it suddenly switches to a residential side street. It could perhaps be Ethelred Street, Wake St, or Lollard Street. They have walked past Bolwell Street.

Hi, the above 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", the search continues......

Could he be WO/2 Mddx. Regt. ?
If so there's a possible contender.
L/2600 Edwin C Tyler 4/Mddx.
14 Star, BW & V also Mentioned in despatches following Mons which may account for the hero's welcome.

I like that idea, I'm still of the mind that it's The Middlesex Regiment cap badge.

Hi everyone,

Thanks very much for all the information and ideas.

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?

I don't have a 'Edwin C. TYLER' in the family tree.
