Please share this with people you know in South London.

Many ex-servicemen settled inh and moved around Lambeth, Southwark, Wandsworth and Croydon, and their children and grandchildren have done the same. 

The picture shows former war time RAF member Neil Flanigan, who is interviewed in the film, and who is still active in the West Indian Association of Service Personnel (WASP ). Neil attends the annual Remembrance service in Windrush Square every year and last year laid a WASP reef in Croydon, as well as attending Croydon Windrush commemoration events.
