Hi, I wasn't part of the Navy, but my parents were. Dad, Graham Beckinsale served on Ark Royal, finishing in roughly 1987, as a Chef. I know he would love to hear from old ship mates, but isn't on Facebook or anything.

What a fantastic ship she was to serve on - I was with 820 NAS onboard for Op Grapple 93-94.
I hope all old shipmates are doing well and would love to hear from anyone on board for this deployment who knew me.

RP. Served from 1989-1992 5D1 & Later 5D2 Mess. Met some great people on the Mighty Ark Royal and had some crazy times. Living the civvy life now but look back with fond memories....maybe didn't appreciate it as much as I should have. Fell out with some people but looking back I regret that....I wish nothing but the best to everyone I had the fortune of meeting and working with during my time as part of a fantastic crew.

Great ship and company, joined her in build 1984 and left 1988 only to re join on her return from the big Outback jolly left her for final time end 1992. Shame she went too early out of service.
