BRITISH CARRIER DEVELOPMENTS BETWEEN THE WORLD WARS British operational and design experience exerted substantial influence on the early post–World War I carriers of all nations. In July 1917 the Admiralty ordered the Hermes, the Royal Navy’s first carrier designed as such from the outset, and followed by purchasing the incomplete Chilean battleship Almirante Cochrane for conversion into the carrier Eagle. Naval attachés from France, Japan, and the United States eagerly monitored the progress of both vessels and also closely observed the Royal Navy’s operational carrier practices with its existing vessels, especially the Furious.

The initial design featured a flush flight deck flanked on either side by small island structures accommodating the furnace uptakes and conning and flying control facilities. The flight deck formed the upper flange of the hull girder and side passages en- THE AIRCRAFT CARRIER MATURES closed the hangar, which was also closed forward. These design features were standard British design practice thereafter. The hangar was open aft to admit seaplanes landing on a special slip extending over the stern.

The Akagi and the Kaga differed in some important respects. The Akagi’s flight deck, at 624 feet overall, was some 65 feet longer than that of the Kaga. It sloped slightly down toward bow and stern from a point about 325 feet from the after end to improve the airflow over the deck. The Akagi also was fitted with British-style longitudinal arresting gear that occupied almost the whole of the after sloping section. The Kaga’s flight deck was flat and fitted from the outset with Schneider-Fieux transverse wire arresting gear purchased from France.
