To mark the 75th anniversary of the arrival of the HMT Empire Windrush we're sharing this conversation with photographer Dave Lewis, discussing his 1994 series of portraits of members of the Windrush generation who fought for Britain during the Second World War and who were amongst the first post-war Caribbean migrants to settle permanently in Britain during the late 1940s
