The destroyer HMS Legion came alongside and took off almost 1500 men whilst a group stayed on board attempting to prevent the HMS Ark Royal from sinking.
On November 13th, 1941, the British aircraft carrier HMS Ark Royal was torpedoed at 1534 by German U-boat U-81. She had been in sight of Gibraltar, returning from reinforcing Malta with more aircraft.
A valiant battle to control the flooding was fought below decks in order to bring Ark Royal to a state where she might be towed back to Gibraltar. It was a losing battle and all the men who stayed on board were evacuated the following day just before Ark Royal sank.
Newport News Shipbuilding has long history with Aircraft Carriers, both design and construction. On this day in 1931, the company laid the keel of the first U.S. Navy ship designed keel-up as a carrier - USS Ranger (CV 4). She was originally designed and built without an island, but one was added prior to delivery. Read more at http://www.ow.ly/BYm4f
