PHOTOGRAPHS of West Indians from the Second World War are being sought for an exhibition in acknowledging the lives of the Windrush generation.

The Bradford Marshfield, Odsal, Bankfoot Enterprise (MOBE) Project is hoping to gather photographs for the exhibition, named Windrush 71, of those who took part in the war, or of their descendants to form a gallery of pictures at City Hall, Bradford, on June 22.

Organiser Lincoln Anderson said: "We want pictures of Caribbean men and women who had served in WWII as well as their stories.

"We realise there will not be a huge amount in the Bradford area so are spreading the net wide, across the county and country.

"Hopefully we will get a good response and it will make a very interesting exhibition."

The 'Windrush scandal' concerned people who were wrongly detained, denied legal rights, threatened with deportation, and, in many cases, wrongly deported from the UK by the Home Office.

Many of those affected had been born British subjects and had arrived in the UK before 1973, particularly from Caribbean countries as members of the 'Windrush generation'. The name was given to them after the Empire Windrush, the ship that brought one of the first groups of West Indian migrants to the UK in 1948.

Anyone who may have photographs they wish to load are asked to ring Lincoln Anderson on: 07775 535828.
