The aircraft carrier Ark Royal was the third vessel of the Royal Navy to bear the name.  She was launched at Birkenhead shipyard of Cammel Laird on the 13th April 1937, H.M.S. Ark Royal was involved in the sinking of the German Battleship Bismarck but later, while on Malta convoy duty, she was torpedoed by the German Submarine U-81. Despite all attempts to tow her to Gibraltar, the Ark Royal slowly heeled over and at 06:13 hrs. on 14th November 1941, she finally went down, only one sailor losing his life.
