    Prince William today unveiled a monument to honour the ‘windrush’ generation of immigrants from the Caribbean, which included persons from T&T.

    Located at the London Waterloo Station, the one-million-pound-sterling monument was designed by a renowned Jamaican artist Basil Watson.

    It symbolises the courage, commitment and resilience of the thousands of men, women and children who travelled to the UK to start new lives from 1948 to 1971.

    It also acknowledges and celebrates the Windrush generation’s outstanding contribution.

    The three figures of the monument – a man, woman, and child – dressed in their “Sunday best” are climbing a mountain of suitcases together.
