2024: UK’s ‘NATIONAL AWAKENING’ FINALLY COMES OF AGE
The first of the Royal Navy’s new aircraft carriers, Queen Elizabeth, will be launched this summer. The First Sea Lord, Admiral Sir George Zambellas, has predicted that it will be “a real moment of national awakening”. It comes at a time when other British senior officers are warning of hollowed out UK armed forces – with new equipment but not the people to operate it. In the first of two articles Nick Childs peers into a notional future at what a “reawakened” British carrier capability might look like and how it might be viewed a decade from now.

At stake is a development suitable for the 21st Century but which may, or may not, leave room for an ambitious project to create a heritage attraction centred on construction of a wooden wall ship as a permanent reminder of Deptford’s rich naval past. Charles Strathdee reports.
