Windrush: 65 years

SS_Empire_Windrush1948 was a monumental year in British History. The National Health Service was founded offering the right of universal healthcare, free at the point of use. London hosted the Olympic Games and Team GB won 3 Gold, 14 Silver and 6 Bronze medals. Charles Philip Arthur George, the Prince of Wales, was born.

The year also marked an epic moment in social history, which began with a thirty-day journey across the Atlantic in an ageing merchant ship called the Empire Windrush. On board were five hundred West Indians who were to become the catalyst for far reaching changes to the fabric of UK society.
