The opening statement in this video is wrong. The Royal Navy did indeed realise the importance of naval aviation and was desperate to gain control back of the Fleet air Arm from the Royal Air Force which had had control of the aircraft and men that flew from the Carriers. The Royal navy saw form 1917 on-wards, It as an integral part of the service and they could not preserve nor guarantee efficiency in fleet operations with the aircraft only given to the Navy at the RAF's pleasure. Lord Beatty was desperate to get the Fleet Air Arm back and in 1923 the control of the fleet air arm was almost gotten back by the Navy. It Failed by two votes in Parliament. Who knows what would have happened if the royal navy had gotten the FAA back, especially with commanders such as Admiral Lyster (the brainchild of Taranto Attack) As an aside with these videos and the time Wargaming seem to have spent at Yeovilton recently are we going to see a Royal Navy Carrier (prob Ark Royal) soon?
