Default H.M.S Ark Royal R09

This pen was made using Salvaged Antique pine from the H.M.S. Ark Royal R09
The pen is a TM Ares in brushed Pewter.
The H.M.S. Ark Royal was built in 1943 to replace the stricken previous Ark Royal that was sunk in 1941 off Gibralter by a German U Boat (U81).
The Timber was salvaged from an Engineers toolbox and is dated 1945 , during the building of the ship and was on board until its decommission in 1979 and subsequent Scrapping in 1980.

Great Pen Thomas.
Terrific Blank, with Excellent Documented, History, and Provenance
Superbly Turned, Fitted and Finished.
This add's too your already, Excellent Collection of Naval Salvaged, Historic Pens.
Great Theme and Craftsmanship.
Turn that special piece of Timber you have been keeping.
Enjoy it for its true beauty.
Why leave it for others to enjoy without you?

Well done, Thomas !! . Another bit of naval memorabilia, both in terms of pen made, and also with the interesting/historical story for background. . What a pity that the beautiful original ship met such an unfortunate end.
Kids rule the world !!! .... eventually if not already !
