The second ship names Ark Royal was lost on Nov 14th 1941 off Gib after being hit by a trop from U81. I have been given some personal memento photos of Ark Royal sinking. MY question is this. What are those latttice work appendages sticking out at 90 degrees from the flight deck. My thought was plane or people catchers. Some of my former army comrades think the same. They were images taken by Richard Park a seaman on board HMS Viddete and later HMS Whimbrel.
