Summary[edit]

Description
English: The Royal Navy’s mighty HMS Ark Royal visits HM Naval Base Clyde in Scotland for the last time.

After celebrating 25 years in Fleet commission at a special ceremony attended by HM The Queen in Portsmouth on November 5, the Royal Navy’s aircraft carrier HMS Ark Royal sailed into the Clyde for the final time.

The Invincible class carrier was considered in the Fleet reductions required under SDSR and Ark will now retire gracefully having delivered a quarter of a century of proud and sterling service to the country.

Her role as the current Royal Navy flagship will initially be taken on by amphibious assault ship HMS Albion in early December.

The Mighty Ark, as she is affectionately known in the Senior Service, paid her visit in order to deammunition at Glen Mallan Jetty on Loch Long.
