that he saw the distinctive coning tower of an Illustrious aircraft carrier in the next berth over from Aquitania. The above picture is an aerial view of the same scene taken in December, 1945. I don’t know enough about the Illustrious Class Carriers to identify which of the four sisters appears in the image. Perhaps someone else will be able to answer that question. I’m guessing the aircraft carrier was also employed in the transport of troops, as many of these ships ended up performing this duty after the war in the Pacific had ended. Aquitania would leave the port on 10 December, she would be the last big Cunard liner to complete a WW2 mission in the Southern Hemisphere.
