And Mitch, having been to Valletta several times over the last 20 years I think you're probably right. When did the opera house get demolished ?

Hi Gary

If you go to the Malta, Sliema creek thread there is virtually the same shot of Kingsway taken in daylight.
The Opera House was destroyed during the war. There was a rumour that it may be rebuilt but I think that it was only a rumour. The area around the gate to Valleta is all being redevolped and was, and still is, a building site when I was there in March this year. The bloke to tell you what is actually happening is Mel on the Sliema thread as he lives on the island.

Brings back memories Scouse. I was ships company at the time of filming but not a "Badger". I was Double Bottoms Party, keeping the floating airfield horizontal, fuelled and watered.

The video also reminded me of when I was "Holdback Jockey" on HMS HERMES first commission 1959-62. As a JM(E), we were considered expendable if blown over the side.

Thanks for the memories.

Sandy.

I'm puzzled by photos 2 & 3 as Triumph had the deck letter P around the Korean War era.

Agreed Jim, photos 2 & 3 are certainly not of Ark Royal and look very much to be of a Colossus class carrier. I am pretty sure the 'P' makes it HMS Triumph.

To my knowledge the Fleet Air Arm may have had no jet aircraft for the whole war, certainly not at sea..

I believe only the first photo could be Ark Royal, with a Scimitar landing. The other two photos are most probably of Triumph
The attached photo is Ark Royal in the reversed view.

Had my scanner out and thought I would post these photos of crew members during my time aboard 1964 to 1967. Seems like yesterday and sorry if there are a lot with me on, I presume I gave a lot of my photos away to the people who were in them
I hope someone recognises themselves.

I took these photos of some Army (spotter?) planes doing some landing trials aboard Ark Royal in 1966. Not sure if we were off Gibraltar at that time. No need for Arrestor Wires or Steam Catapults. May have been in preparation for when the Fleet Air Arm had no fixed wing aircraft of their own, such as now

Great photos Jim - thanks for sharing them

I notice "jumbo" is well represented in pics 2, 3 and 4 of the "Pongo" - can't really tell who the crew were though.

Gentlemen: There are plenty of DeHavilland Beavers and Otters, some now turbine powered, available on the used market to form the necessary Army Air Corps squadrons to fulfill the needs of 16 Air Assault Brigade and 3 Commando Brigade, per terrae per mare. You could probably buy the whole lot for less than the cost of one F35!!!

Some more photos, probably taken 1965 when transitting the Suez Canal. I think that, on the 1966 return through the canal, we were in company with the Royal Yacht which was, possibly returning from a visit to Australia.

More photos from the Suez Canal transit. The last photo is of the souvenir boats hoisted onto the flight deck. From them you could buy AFO's, discreetly hidden, but written by someone who could not spell, or type
The Hully Gully man also performed on the flight deck, not a patch on Tommy Cooper thought

What is the dramatic monument in the third photo of your post 234, Jim? Never made the transit myself, being a Pacific Fleet dude in my day, so am unfamiliar with it, but vaguely remember it has been mentioned on the forum previously.

The monument is the ANZAC memorial to commemorate all the Australian & New Zealand who lost their lives at Gallipoli during WW1. When transiting the canal we had a sweepstake on the actual time the bow of the ship was exactly opposite the memorial.

Thanks for that, Old Salt. ANZAC did ring a bell after I thought of it. Anything on why that particular spot was selected for the memorial for those who fought and died a long way from there? It does seem an appropriate place however, considering all the RN ships that would have had to pass through there then and now.

 During a patrol on 6th July 1918, Christiansen spotted a British submarine on the surface of the Thames Estuary. He immediately turned and put his Hansa-Brandenburg W.29 floatplane into an attacking dive, raking the submarine C.25 with machine gun fire, killing the captain and five other crewmen. This victory was added to his personal tally, bringing his score to 13 kills by the end of the war, even though the submarine managed to limp back to safety. Christiansen survived the war and went on to work as a pilot for the Dornier company, notably flying the giant Dornier Do.X on its inaugural flight to New York in 1930. He died in 1972, aged 93.

 The greatest naval battle of the First World War took place on the 31st of May and the 1st of June 1916, near the Danish province of Jutland.  It was the first and only sea battle between the British and German fleets, and certainly proved to be the clash of the Titans that the First Lord of the Admiralty, Winston Churchill, had long planned.  Decisive victory was claimed by both sides, but, desperately fought though it was, the outcome was indecisive.  The Royal Navy suffered higher losses in both men and ships, but the German fleet never ventured out of harbour to seek battle again.  During the daylight fighting HMS Barham, under Rear Admiral Evan-Thomas, lead the 5th Battle Squadron (Valiant, Warspite and Malaya) and is seen here at 4.50pm exchanging with Hippers battle-cruisers to the south.

Germanys U-boat fleet had almost brought Britain to its knees in the First World war, twenty years later the story was very similar. the German U-boat arm came perilously close to cutting the lifeline that crossed the Atlantic between North America and Britain. in the early years of the war Donitz realised that keeping his U-boats at sea for as long as possible would greatly increase their chances of success. here U-93 (left) and U-94 take fuel from the auxiliary cruiser Kormoran whilst in the mid-Atlantic during 1941

He also claimed victory at the Italian Grand Prix at Monza.  Along with Michael Schumachers nine victories, Herbert  helped Benetton win their first constructors championship in the 1995 season.  The Formula One Benetton B195 was designed by Rory Byrne and Ross Brawn for use in the 1995 Formula One season by Benetton.  The B195 was almost identical to the B194 but for a change of engine supplier from Ford to Renault V10 engine, the same type the rival Williams team was using.  With his first two Formula One wins under his belt in 1995, Johnny Herbert won just one more race, winning at the Nurburgring at the European Grand Prix in 1999, racing for Stewart Ford.  He retired from Formula One in 2000.

Half Price! - £280.00
 The afternoon of 25th July 1940 was a desperate one for the already exhausted fighter pilots of the RAF defending the South coast of England.  As convoy CW8 made its way through the English Channel, sixty JU.87 Stukas and forty JU.88 bombers launched a brutal attack on the ships below, backed up by fighter cover of over 50 Messerscmitt Bf.109s.  Eight Spitfires of 64 Sqn (Kenley) were scrambled, together with twelve Spitfires of 54 Sqn (Hornchurch) and Hurricanes of 111 Sqn from Croydon.  The British pilots found themselves massively outnumbered, but nevertheless put up a spirited fight against the teeming enemy.  This painting shows Spitfires of 54 Sqn entering the fray, the pilots scattering as they choose their targets and go after the JU.87s. To the right of this, Bf.109Es of JG.26 are roaring in to join battle, whilst Adolf Gallands aircraft engages a Hurricane of 111 Sqn.
