Wat Tyler was the Recording Officer of 266 Squadron during the Biggles' time. Although he gets a speaking part in many stories, there is hardly ever any background of him. The only description we have of him comes from Chapter 3 of The Rescue Flight. Here Peter Fortymore and Dick Ripley report to him in the squadron office. Seen through their eyes, Tyler is described as a "little sandy-haired man, with a terrible scar on the side of his jaw." The reader might therefore speculate that he was a pilot or other combatant who had been injured and thus given a desk job. Fortymore and Ripley were wearing lieutenants' uniform and saluted him and addressed him as "sir", suggesting that he had the rank of captain.
