The Queens Guard

Last week I spent three days in the centre of London photographing recipients, of various awards, from the latest Operational Honours and Awards list. These brave people were being recognised for their hard work, bravery and gallantry. The awards ranged from a Mention In Despatches (MID), right through to Military Crosses (MC), Member of the order of the British Empire (MBE) and Queens Commendations for Bravery (QCB).

These jobs are always nice. You hear some amazing stories about the recipients, and there is always a nice ambience about the situation. 

On the final day of the job, we were in Wellington Barracks which is next to Buckingham Palace. We were conducting live TV and Radio interviews with a select few recipients from the last two days. Prior to us arriving we had been asked to cover the changing of the guard, and also the Major Generals Review, an inspection where the General must approve the Battalions dress prior to public duties.

The job was simple, and apart form a few 'access' issues, it went well. The weather was scorching, London was packed with tourists, and I was getting paid to be there!!

Here are a select few from the day.

Hope you enjoy
