Jamaican Migrants Set Foot In Tilbury Earlier on this morning, many Jamaican migrants came to Tilbury and are keen to share their thoughts. A large number of migrants expressed the way they missed their more tropical environment, but one particular 49 year old man seemed impressed by his first sightings. “I’m liking what I see, and I can’t wait to arrive at Hampstead N.W.1 as I hear there is a job free as a mechanic,” commented Arthur Falkes. It’s very uncommon for a migrant to settle right away, but this man, he seems like he’s been here for years! Each and everyone’s next step will be to start almost a whole new beginning in England; a new life. Seeming as they have been living here for a bit, many people hope to be re-distributed to new addresses. Arthur Falkes, being one of them, is known to be a very resourceful man as a mechanic, as he hopes very much to be. Harry Wycherley. The Daily Daisy Friday 22 nd June 1948 Price: 3 shillings.

Many where rearing to go to there newfound jobs but are the english happy about this? An ambitious young business man commented ‘If theyre stealing our jobs they may as well work hard we don’t want no slack.Experts are saying many people find it unacceptable to have black people in their community therefore they may expect abuse.
