Australian aircraft carrier at Portsmouth in 1977. She was originally HMS MAJESTIC and was built by Vickers Armstrongs at Barrow. work on her was suspended as WW2 had finished and she was transferred to the RAN in 1947.
Decommissioned in 1982 she was sold to Chinese breakers in 1985 but prior to breaking was studied by the Chinese Navy as they were planning to develop carriers.
