With the nationalisation of many services and industries and the rebuilding of Britain underway, it became apparent that there would be a shortage of labour. With that in mind, the post-war government granted all people of the British Empire full citizenship. In 1948, the first ship—the Windrush—arrived from Jamaica, bringing with it the first wave of what was to be tens of thousands of people from the West Indies. Learn all about this fascinating period—when Britain became truly multicultural—and consider what life must have been like for the first Caribbean immigrants coming to start new lives in Britain.
