Portland 1955. Colossus Class Light Fleet Carrier. Launched 8 July 1944 at Alexander Stephen & Sons Linthouse shipyard. Scrapped in Faslane Summer 1962. She had an active and eventful life. When the photo was taken, OCEAN was no longer operating aircraft and had taken over from INDEFATIGABLE in the Home Fleet Training Squadron. I was only onboard her for six months, during which time we shipped 45 Commando, Royal Marines to Cyprus and lifted troops from Port Said and brought them home.
