  1. Retiring Type says

    Contributors to have identified the subject of this film as Sergeant William Tyler DCM, 9705, 1st Battalion East Lancashire Regiment. The regiment was identified from a close examination of the cap badge and surprisingly it seems that many members of that battalion were born in the London area. William\'s regimental number suggests that he volunteered in January 1908.
    The Tyler family ( mother Mary Ann. sister Martha, and younger brother John) lived at 32 Wake Street, Lambeth during WW1. We think the first part of the film was set in Lambeth Walk, near the George pub, and the second part around the corner in Wake Street.
