Default Milestones in 2019

The incident of the 'Shark Papers' occurred in 1799, 220 years ago this year. Nancy was a French boat illegally sailing in waters around English colonies in the Caribbean. Stopped at sea by another boat, the captain of Nancy threw the papers for the boat into the sea so as not to be identified as an enemy boat. But a shark was captured on the high seas with the papers in its mouth. The Shark Papers are in the Institute of Jamaica.

Archbishop Samuel Carter, the very first Jamaican to become a Roman Catholic bishop, was born 100 years ago on July 31 1919.

The Second World War was declared 80 years ago in 1939. Were it not for the war and its effect on England, there would have been no Empire Windrush by which Jamaicans migrated to England between 1948 and 1961.
