The Windrush Generation - Euton Christian

This year marks seventy years since the Empire Windrush set sail from the West Indies and docked in the UK on June 22nd 1948.

Originally sent to bring servicemen who were on leave from the British armed forces back to the UK, because of the size of the ship, hundreds of others were offered the chance to join them on board to fill up space, for a £28 fee. 773 more words

Here's an insight into the life of one of the many ordinary/extraordinary members of this generation; Euton Christian. You can learn more about Mr Christian in the Roots Oral History Project collection and the Exploring our Roots Collection.
