In 1950 Mum and
myself returned to England for a holiday. We traveled on the MV Empire Windrush from Malta
to probably Southampton. Christmas day was spent on board but all I can recall is Father
Christmas appearing from the funnel. The Captain of the Empire Windrush was Commander W
Wilson O.B.E. I believe the Empire Windrush caught fire and sank several years
later, if anyone knows more about this vessel please let me know.
