Marcel Viallet, or Vialet?

An article by J. Mortane states "Marcel Viallet," and appears to have a
photograph with the autograph "M. Viallet," yet the Musee des Hommes
gives his name as "Marcel Vialet" in their fiche of his service record.
Which surname is correct? If it is "Viallet," why is the official record
card in error? Are such errors frequent, or exceptional?

His exact surmname is Vialet with one 'L'
look here is signing at bottom of his record on Memoire des Hommes archives

These sort of errors are relatively exceptionnal, hopefully

One sees something similar with French ace Alfred Heurtaux/Heurteaux. The first is correct, but the second is commonly found, probably because it comes from a popular postcard.
