Following the Trial's of the RN Aircraft Carrier's, proposal's (complete with plan's) were put forward(1923) for an aircraft carrying Mail Steamer which was a flat top (sans island). It was to carry around 1,250 Passenger's along with 460 Crew, Turbine powered she was to steam along at around 22 knots, the aircraft that it was going to carry ranged from the ex Military Sopwith Cuckoo to the civilian 10 seater Bristol. Like most M.N. vessel's it was also envisaged that it would have a War Role.
