For me a 6th Ark would be at the top of the list
with Eagle or Hermes fighting it out for second.

As long as they don't let No10 get involved in the
naming just think of it to cement our new found
friendship with the old enemy we could end up
with H.M.S. Nepolion or the like ???   :o

Are you aware that the RFA once used the name "Ark Royal" for one of their ships? And a scruffy old thing she looked. BY.
