    H.M.S. Illustrious, a 23,000-ton aircraft carrier, which was badly damaged during a dive bombing attack in the Mediterranean, was again in service after refitting in American and British dockyards. Her commander at this time was Captain A. G. Talbot, D.S.O. R.N. This photograph shows a Swordfish aircraft which had just landed on the flying deck of the Illustrious and is being taken to the forward lift.
