Blackburn Shark II passing HMS Courageous

Blackburn Shark II passing HMS Courageous

Here we see a Blackburn Shark flying over HMS Courageous, with a Fairey IIIF in the background. The carrier is identified as the Furious on the IWM website, but she never had this arrangement of island and funnel. The ship can be identified as the Courageous by the short extension of the rear of the flight deck.
