Skilly, I look forward to the new Elizabeth Class aircraft carriers. It was Britain that used armoured decks in WW2 unlike the American carriers with wooden decks and I think the launch steam catapult was invented by the British as well?

Armoured decks
Steam catapults
Angled flight decks
VTOL aircraft
Ski jump carriers...actually invented by an RAF Officer

And also the 'Meatball' mirror deck landing system was invented by an RN FAA officer, although the yanks always seem to think they invented it.

And why is it called the Chart Room - because there are drawers and drawers of the bloomin' things - so many they often don't even shut properly!.
That's nowt, my Warehouse contains over a million of them!  ;)
