Read more about Windrush

A member of our group recently came across these sites. If you would like to read more about the arrival of MV Empire Windrush in the UK in 1948, take a look. Forgotten Voyages, from the British Library also gives information on other ships that came to Britain including the SS Ormonde which arrived with 11 stowaways and the Almanzora which arrived in 1947 as well as the Reina del Pacifico which docked in Liverpool in 1954 with 300 Jamaicans on board.
