Windrush scandal: last country of residence of passengers on the first ship 1948

This statistic shows the last country of residence given by passengers of the HMT Empire Windrush which docked at Tilbury near London on 21 June 1948. As the statistic illustrates, most of the passengers disembarking at London gave Jamaica as their last country of residence. Post-war migration from the Caribbean to Britain is heavily associated with this particular journey, giving rise to the term 'Windrush generation'.
