Not forgetting Curious! Yes you're spot on Pusser.
Furious, Glorious & Courageous better known as aircraft carriers but originally " large light cruisers"
I thought the pre-conversion photo might distract you.
Here's a more familiar picture.

For a bonus then, the captain of HMS Glorious at the time of her loss has been the subject of some recent bad press suggesting he was pursuing a vendetta against a junior officer but for what acts was he decorated during WW1 (it involved a bit of swimming).

Guy d'Oyly-Hughes was First Lieutenant of submarine E20 at the Dardanelles. He swam ashore and blew up a viaduct. I believe he was awarded a DSO for that episode.
