Description

Twenty-Eight Pounds and Ten Shillings: A Windrush Story by Tony Fairweather.

After World War Two England was on her knees, so the call went out to the British Empire for volunteers to help rebuild the 'Mother Country'. Young men and women from different Caribbean islands were quick to respond, paying the considerable sum of £28.10s to board HMT Empire Windrush - the 'ship of dreams' that would take them to their new lives.

The motives and back-stories of these West Indian people is a key part of the Windrush story, one that has never been fully told. This powerful narrative reveals what might have happened on board that ship, which was packed with young, excited people who had never before left their parents, their parishes - let alone their islands. In the course of the memorable voyage there were parties, friendships made and broken, fights, gambling, racism, sex - and discussions of God and love.
