Biography

"THE LATE PRIVATE J. C. TYLER.

Private John C. Tyler, who was killed in action in France on August 26, was the only son of S. and M. Tyler and brother of Mrs. R. J. Bennetts, of Gawler (S.A.). He was born at South Broken Hill and received his education there. He enlisted in February, 1919, and left Australia in March, and after serving in Egypt was transferred to France. Prior to enlisting he was in the employ of his uncle, M, H, Brown, produce merchant, Gawler and, although of a quiet disposition, was well liked by a wide circle of friends, who deeply regret his early death." - from the Adelaide Chronicle 28 Oct 1916 (nla.gov.au)
