There is not a lot of literature I have seen about the Fleet Air Arm of the RN. I know they had a number of carriers (I know some units were equipped with US Navy aircraft)? Besides Taranto, Malta and Okinawa and the disaster at Norway, what were some major actions by the Fleet Air Arm? Was their primary role during much of the war patrolling for U-Boats? I know the UK had a number of carriers, and a large naval force, but I don't know much about the Fleet Air Arm at war. Did the Fleet Air Arm have ground based units in various theaters?
