Beautiful carrier! Wonder why the RN never made an attempt to sell her in the late 60s. Argentina bought the Karel Doorman in 1968 but this would have been a better purchase, one wonders if the MOD sales team cared about selling second hand ships? Seems all the focus was on export sales of new builds such as the Leanders.

Didn't know she was in a bad way. Begs the question why the long 8 year refit just 10 years before.

Was it the Mighty Vic that got caught on the lock cill with a falling tide and they nearly lost her?
