The “Mighty Ark”, the most famous ship of the Navy in the 1970s.

Britain’s last strike carrier became a household name through the filming on board of the BBC TV series “Sailor”.

Undiscovered painting   This painting lay in a folder for 25 years, forgotten, undiscovered until it surfaced during a search for some other paintings, ironically, landscapes.

Gordon Frickers said, this was painted partly as “a tribute to the great artist JMW Turner” who loved to visit Plymouth, Devon and paint the fleet and people, and helped me with my “A Level Art history”.
