HMS IMPLACABLE landed her air crews and aircraft in Australia and was converted to accommodate passengers. She was then deployed for repatriation of British POW and embarked 2,127 at Manila to take passage to Canada arriving at Esquimalt on 11 October 1945. In January 1946 she visited Melbourne with HMS INDEFATIGABLE and sailed for UK in May, arriving in June that year. The ship was placed in Reserve and refitted before joining the Home Fleet as Flagship in 1949. Due to manning problems during 1950 many Home Fleet ships had to be withdrawn from service and HMS IMPLACABLE was deployed in the Training Squadron and continued service in the training role until 1954 when placed in Reserve. Placed on the Disposal List she was sold for breaking-up at Inverkeithing, Rosyth arriving at the breakers yard on 3rd November 1955.
