Were you a 'ten pound pom'?
Two researchers at the University of Sussex are on the look-out for some of the thousands of 'ten pound poms' who left Britain for a new life in Australia after the Second World War - but only if they came back. Dr Alistair Thomson and Dr Lani Russell, who are based at the University's Centre for Continuing Education, want to talk to migrants who later returned from Australia to Britain.
An enormous number of people - more than a million - migrated from Britain to Australia in the quarter century after 1945. Most went as assisted migrants, paying ten pounds for the journey.
