    HMS MALAYA

    All Royal Navy carriers had steel or armored flight decks whereas USN carriers had wooden flight decks and burnt very well. The comment about concrete is about a Kamikaze attack on a British Pacific Fleet carrier was swept into the sea with the resulting dent in the steel was filled with (quick drying) concrete to enable the carrier to keep flying!
