Earlier entries now unmarked.

____________________________________________________________________________________
I 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 strange name 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" !!

"Click" on the video clip below to view a "Spoof" You-Tube interview with an "Admiral Parr" ( Bird and Fortune ) covering the proposed
"New", 21st Century, Aircraft Carriers and the operational use they will have :-




This "Spoof Video" is probably much nearer to the truth than our "Political Class" may care to admit,
even though she is now afloat in 2017 !!!
____________________________________________________________________________________________________

We found ourselves, in early 2011, with no carrier borne "Harrier" aircraft,
what are left of the T.D.C. carriers being "Laid up", whilst HMS Ark Royal is to be sold for scrap, and with her sisters probably soon to follow her!!
There will be no carrier capable aircraft to be in service for at least the next 10 years, even if then !!.
Maritime Reconnaissance "Nimrods" are being broken up before they even enter service, even more Frigates and RN ships are being disposed of,
and, in fact, most of the rest of our Armed services are now being reduced to near Impotency. 
There 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 !!
Or, of 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 !!
