A New HMS Ark Royal?
I have just heard that a new HMS Ark Royal is to be built. One of the monster aircraft-carriers currently on the stocks was to be called the HMS Prince of Wales, but apparently it is now to be renamed HMS Ark Royal.
This is encouraging as it would be almost impossible (even for the Ministry of Defence) to scrap two Ark Royals in one year!
