HMS Ark Royal

Invincible Class Aircraft Carrier

Ark Royal Flight Deck Operations

Ark Royal's Air Group

Whenever Ark Royal was at sea the personnel numbers onboard were almost always swelled by the men and women of her embarked squadrons.


Whilst it is not possible to publish a list of everyone that ever served on Ark, a list of squadron personnel was published for the ship's Commission Book in 1988. You can use the links below to view the squadron lists. We don't know if any other lists were ever published but if lists do exist and you have a copy then please email us at .
