- AIRCRAFT CARRIERS BULWARK -
La Albion dal febbraio 1961 all'agosto 1962 ha subito lavori per essere trasformata in nave per trasporto truppe di assalto anfibio (Commando Carrier); la Bulwark aveva avuto la stessa trasformazione dal gennaio 1959 al gennaio 1960.
La Bulwark nel 1979 fu riutilizzata come nave antisommergibili. Nel 1980 la nave ha cessato il servizio.
HMS Albion and HMS Bulwark, the next two members of the class completed spent their lives inextricably linked. They both took part in Operation Musketeer, during the Suez Crisis, and they were both later converted into commando carriers. In this role, instead of carrying fast jets, they carried helicopters and marines. They were worked hard in the 1960s, with each taking turns deploying 'east of Suez' to the Far East Fleet. The link was broken when Albion was decommissioned in 1973. Bulwark lingered on a few years longer until 1976. However, in 1979, Bulwark was recommissioned in the anti-submarine role. It was only a short change though as an engine room fire in 1980 finally saw the old ship withdrawn from service.
