***New In***WW1 HMS Argus Medal Grouping.

A superb fresh to the market WW1 Naval grouping. Recently purchased fro the Grandaughter of CPO Bartlett.

Consisting of:

1. Naval LSGC - HMS Argus

2. WW1 War Medal

3. WW1 Victory Medal

4. WW1 1914-15 Star

5. 1919 Peace Medal

HMS Argus was an aircraft carrier that served in the Royal Navy from 1918 to 1944. She was converted from an ocean liner that was under construction when the First World War began and became the first example of the standard pattern of aircraft carrier, with a full-length flight deck that allowed wheeled aircraft to take off and land. After commissioning, the ship was involved for several years in the development of the optimum design for other aircraft carriers. Argus also evaluated various types of arresting gear, general procedures needed to operate a number of aircraft in concert and fleet tactics. The ship was too top-heavy as originally built and had to be modified to improve her stability in the mid-1920s. She spent one brief deployment on the China Station in the late 1920s.
