A CROYDON photographer was chosen by Westminster Abbey to take its official pictures of Monday's national commemoration service.
Andrew Dunsmore, who runs the Picture Partnership in Wickham Road, Shirley, was joined by colleague Ian Stratton, from Purley, to record the service.
Mr Dunsmore's pictures included the Duchess of Cornwall as she extinguished the last candle on the tomb of the Unknown Warrior at the end of the service.
He said: "It was fantastic service, although a solemn occasion.
"It was a great privilege to be asked by the Abbey authorities to take the pictures."
Mr Dunsmore has worked for the Abbey on previous occasions including the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and a visit by President Barack Obama.
