Remembering the past, growing the future

Remembering the Past projectIn marking the end of the First World War we embarked on a project to recognise the contribution of colonial seafarers, many of whom came from what today is Pakistan, and whose stories link with more recent migrations. As part of the project a new online learning resource for schools was created.
