A former editor of the Kilburn Times has died at the age of 91.
Denis Soul served with the RAF during the Second World War before he carved out a successful journalism career.
The father-of-one edited the Kilburn Times in the 1980s moving to the City of London Recorder for a few months until he retired in 1990.
His first reporting job was with the Surrey Comet prior to him becoming the editor of the Richmond, Twickenham and Barnes Herald.
He left that role to join the Kilburn Times.
Mr Soul was an elder of Canbury Park Church in Kingston, for more than 30 years and was actively involved in many aspects of the life of the church including preaching, teaching and leading services.
He was also a member of the London Emmanuel Choir and the Arts Centre Group and had lived for many years in Tolworth with his first wife, Freda, who died in 1981.
