Unknown Warrior picture

Recommended Posts

Hi, I've recently come across a picture of the service for the Unknown Warrior. Once long ago it would've graced the wall of someone's home but for the last few decades it's been stuck in a garage until it was rescued before being thrown in a skip. Does anyone have information on the picture? I've put on a photo of the picture plus a close up of the signature.

Regards Richard.

Great picture. At first I wondered whether it was an original photograph, such is the detail.

 

Scope for identifying some of the featured dignitaries?

I Googled Images and came up with other WWI prints by Matania

 

and some useful info about the ceremony, including names of the pall-bearers

One of his best-known works is perhaps "The Last General Absolution of the Munsters at Rue du Bois", discussed
