In this image we can see two RAF Harrier GR.1 on board the aircraft carrier HMS Eagle (R-05). They were shipped for testing for two weeks in the early 1970's. Note that the Eagle was not retrofitted to operate the Phantom like her twin the Eagle being decommissioned even with Sea Vixen on board as pictured

Soviet cruiser Aleksandr Suvorov, in the photograph with Numeral 834. This Numeral was used by the ship in 1969. It also had several Pennant Numbers, on different dates, as was common in Soviet times, for example, among others, it used the Numeral 53, 20, 45 or 632 in the 1950s, Numeral 834, 140 or 831 in the 1960s, and in the 1980s Pennant Numbers 015, 016, 033 and 035. It belonged to Project 68 Bis, known in NATO code as the Sverdlov class. The Aleksandr Suvorov cruiser entered service with the Soviet Navy in December 1953, remaining in service until December 1986 when she was placed in reserve. In 1989 she was disarmed and sold to Turkey for scrapping in 1991. Her main artillery consisted of four triple turrets with six inch or 152 mm guns.

T class submarine HMS Trooper leaving Malta harbour on patrol. February 1943

Trooper spent most of her short career serving in the Mediterranean. She sank the Italian tanker Rosario, the Italian merchant ship Forli, a sailing vessel and the Italian submarine Pietro Micca. She also damaged two other enemy vessels, and unsuccessfully attacked the Italian merchant Belluno (the former French Fort de France).

On her first operation, she took part in Operation Principal, which used human torpedoes to sink Italian ships in Palermo harbour.

Trooper sailed from Beirut on 26 September 1943, on her 8th War Patrol to cover in the Aegean Sea off the Dodecanese islands. On 14 October she challenged Levant Schooner Flotilla F8 off Alinda Bay, Leros. She failed to return on 17 October and was reported overdue on that day. She is presumed lost on German mines around Leros.

The three task groups of TF 38 completed their transit [of the Luzon Strait] during the night of 20 and 21 January. The next morning, their planes hit airfields on Formosa, in the Pescadores, and at Sakishima Gunto. The good flying weather brought mixed blessings. While it allowed American flight operations to continue through the day, it also brought new gusts of the "Divine Wind." Just after noon, a single-engined Japanese plane scored a hit on Langley with a glide-bombing attack. Seconds later, a kamikaze swooped out of the clouds and plunged toward Ticonderoga. He crashed through her flight deck abreast of the No. 2 5-inch mount, and his bomb exploded just above her hangar deck. Several planes stowed nearby erupted into flames. Death and destruction abounded, but the ship's company fought valiantly to save the threatened carrier. Capt. Kiefer conned his ship smartly. First, he changed course to keep the wind from fanning the blaze. Then, he ordered magazines and other compartments flooded to prevent further explosions and to correct a 10-degree starboard list. Finally, he instructed the damage control party to continue flooding compartments on Ticonderoga's port side. That operation induced a 10-degree port list which neatly dumped the fire overboard! Firefighters and plane handlers completed the job by dousing the flames and jettisoning burning aircraft.
The other kamikazes pounced on her like a school of sharks in a feeding frenzy. Her antiaircraft gunners struck back with desperate, but methodical, ferocity and quickly swatted three of her tormentors into the sea. A fourth plane slipped through her barrage and smashed into the carrier's starboard side near the island. His bomb set more planes on fire, riddled her flight deck, and injured or killed another 100 Sailors, including Capt. Kiefer. Yet, Ticonderoga's crew refused to submit. Spared further attacks, they brought her fires completely under control not long after 1400; and Ticonderoga retired painfully.
