Aircraft carrier website dedicated to the history of HMS Archer, HMS Avenger, HMS Biter and HMS Dasher from their launch to their participation in major wars also notice board for families of ex-crew of Archer class carriers. 

HMS Dasher was a converted aircraft carrier which blew up and sank in the River Clyde, Scotland between the Isle of Arran and Ardrossan. with the Loss of 379 lives. It is believed fuel had leaked from a aircraft which had crashed landed on deck. This carrier was built in the US. and its Fire precaution specification was not as high as those built for the RN in Britain. which may account for such a huge loss of life
