HMS Ark Royal

Invincible Class Aircraft Carrier

HMS Ark Royal 1985

Ship's Company 1985

A warship is useless without men and women to operate its systems. Though many have served on other carriers no other draft was quite like serving on 'The Mighty Ark'.

 

Below is a list of the Ship's Company of HMS Ark Royal in November 1985, as published in the official commissioning book. As this pre-dates the introduction of women at sea in the Royal Navy, the entire crew are male.
