This
photo shows the preparations for a series of take off.
We see that space was restricted for such manoeuvres.

This photo shows us how the planes were lowered in the hangars
on one of the two elevators, one in front and one back aft.





These operations were conducted very quickly, thanks to well-trained men.

A Paravane.
An apparatus having the shape of a torpedo, a vessel in order to protect against mines
underwater device also having a cutting cables mines, mine thus float on the surface and allowing the blow by pulling. Paravanes were also used in pairs either in the front and on each side of the ship. It required long steel cables for the greatest possible distance. Some Farmiles possessed.
Our carriers had too.

 Here is the emblem that I have on my wall with my   Commander sword.
Vercingetorix is our emblem, who was a warrior who lived 72 years BC .....

Now comes the emblem of the Magnificent in the same place.
A sun in the middle of which a maple leaf!








I think these two emblems are most beautiful!
