A 75 year old photograph from my father's small collection of wartime photographs. This is the aircraft carrier HMS Indomitable at high speed while providing air cover for a Malta convoy - during the biggest convoy operation she was severely damaged by two 500lb bombs and had to withdraw for repairs. She returned to action, only to be torpedoed during the Sicily landings. Nevertheless, Indomitable survived the war and was sold for scrap in 1955.
