The Empire Windrush arrived at Tilbury on 22 June 1948, carrying 493 passengers from Jamaica wishing to start a new life in the United Kingdom. The passengers (including one stowaway) were the first large group of West Indian immigrants to the UK after the Second World War. Before 1948, the ship, under the name of Monte Rosa, had been used for cruises in pre-war Germany, and then as a German troopship and prisoner transport ship, before being captured by the British and taken as a war prize.

She continued to be used as a British troopship after 1948, but sank in the Mediterranean Sea in March 1954 after a sudden and catastrophic fire in her engine room, just off the coast of Algeria.
  • La Empire Windrush era una nave che ebbe una parte rilevante nella storia multietnica del Regno Unito. Il 22 giugno 1948 la Empire Windrush approdò a Tilbury con 492 passeggeri provenienti dalla Giamaica, che speravano di cominciare una nuova vita nel Regno Unito. I passeggeri furono il primo grande gruppo di immigranti, provenienti dalle Indie Occidentali, che si trasferirono negli UK dopo la Seconda guerra mondiale. Lo sbarco dei passeggeri divenne un episodio di grande importanza per la storia moderna della Gran Bretagna, simboleggiando l'inizio delle relazioni multiculturali moderne che avrebbero cambiato la società inglese in modo significativo negli anni a venire. Nel 1998, un'area pubblica a Brixton venne chiamata Windrush Square per commemorare il cinquantesimo anniversario dell'arrivo degli Indiani Occidentali.
