HMS ARK ROYAL AND THE MATERIALS USED

We have teak wood decking sections from the quarter deck that was salvaged when she was decommissioned and dismantled in 1980 at Cairnryan Scotland.
We also have a few other materials, including brass handrails and porthole screws from this, one of the most famous aircraft carriers.
HMS Ark Royal (R09) was an Audacious-class aircraft carrier of the Royal Navy and, when she was decommissioned in 1979, she was the Royal Navy's last remaining conventional catapult and arrest-landing aircraft carrier.
She was the first aircraft carrier to be equipped with the angled flight deck since its commission, although her sister ship, HMS Eagle, was the Royal Navy's first aircraft carrier to be equipped with such a system (after modification in 1954)
