A lot happened in Ark Royal's 25 years of service so it isn't always easy to remember when exactly that great run ashore was. So, as something of a memory jogger, we have published Ark Royal's Ship's Programme year by year from 1985 onwards; check it out, there is bound to be an event in there that you had forgotten about.
We have tried to be as accurate as possible with the limited resources available but there still may be some errors. If you are able to provide more accurate information or maybe correct an error then please email us.

Note: HMS Ark Royal was in Extended Readiness / Refit from 1995 to 2000 and in 2005 so there are no programmes for these years.
