From War to Windrush

Fri 21 Jun – Fri 5 Jul 2019

On the 3rd September 1939 Britain declared war on Nazi Germany.

Newspapers all over the Caribbean carried the news and over the next six years, several thousand men and women volunteered to help Britain- the Mother Country- fight against fascism and Nazi aggression.

Volunteers came from all around the Caribbean- from Antigua, the Bahamas, Barbados, Bermuda, British Guiana (now Guyana), British Honduras (now Belize), Dominica, Grenada, Jamaica, Montserrat, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and Trinidad and Tobago.

From War to Windrush is their story – Photographic and Art Exhibition on display at the top of the Ceremonial Stairs.
