HMS Prince of Wales.  Sunk on December 10th, 1941.


HMS Prince of Wales.  Commissioned into the Royal Navy December 10th, 2019.

There is no way that wasn't intentional, and the RN deserves a round of applause for it.  If only they could have put the ship's bell that was recovered from the battleship on the carrier...

On second thought, sailors are a superstitious lot.  Maybe putting the bell from a sunken ship on board a brand-new one is a bad idea.
