    Hello to all, I would like to share with whoever it may concern an obtained fragment from the Aircraft carrier HMS Eagle. I am not sure what carrier it is from but I think most likely the one laid down in ww2 and built in 1950s.

    Very cool. My father served on this carrier in 1971 just before she was laid up for spares for Ark Royal. It was a monster carrier not much smaller than the newly built Queen Elizabeth. Some great stories from him including sailing in to Plymouth and hitting the reef causing terrible damage to the keel.
