Think these are laid up or, to use naval parlance In Reserve, ex-WW2 surplus. Wouldn't even attempt to identify the carriers.

Now you come to mention it Paul I think you are right. They do seem to be away from the dockyard further up the River Tamar. I have a vague recollection that someone mentioned "laid up". Got to remember it was 50+ years ago.
