section last updated :- Mid April 2020..... (#) indicates added or
updated photo's. Earlier
entries now unmarked. "Scroll

have slightly altered this section to include the "Modern" Carriers
" HMS's. Ark Royal, Illustrious, and Invincible"
( although even these ships have now gone for scrapping), as separate entries
with the Suffix of T.D.C's. - "Through Deck Cruisers". This
came about during the aftermath of the "Labour Party's 1966 Fleet
Review", under Dennis Healey,
when even to mention the term "Aircraft
Carrier" was almost a "Treasonable Offence" !!

"New", 21st Century, Aircraft Carriers
and the operational use they will
This "Spoof Video", from 2011, is probably much nearer to the truth than our "Political Class" may care to admit,
even though both Queen Elizabeth and Prince of Wales are now afloat, and in R.N. service, in 2020
had found ourselves, in early 2011, with no carrier borne "Harrier"
what was left of the T.D.C. carriers being "Laid up", whilst HMS Ark Royal was sold for scrap, and with her sisters soon to follow her!!
There would be
carrier capable aircraft to be in service for at least the next 10 years, even if then !!.
Now, at least, in 2020, we seem to be getting a bit of a Navy back again, and her "Fixed Wing" aircraft are soon to follow.!
Maritime Reconnaissance "Nimrods" were being broken up before they even
entered service, even more Frigates and RN ships were being disposed of,
and, in fact,
most of the rest of our Armed services are now being reduced to near Impotency.
are many areas on this site where I "Wonder aloud" whether this
destruction of our Forces is "European led",
as it seems that no
matter what we may think, "Europe" has the last word !!
course, it could all be down to a "Backdoor" method of bringing a
"European Defense Force" into being,
against most peoples will it must
be stated !! ____________________________________________
