    The title, and particularly the text, of this clip imply that this is film of a British aircraft carrier called "Corsairs". Just to make it clear, what we see here is a number of Vought F4U Corsair fighters aboard an unnamed aircraft carrier.

    The data indicates 2:32 minutes of footage but the video is only 1:30 minutes. The description of mountain peaks is not seen in this video. This may be footage of the attack on the Turpitz by HMS Formidable. This is certainly a Bogue class carrier and the roundels indicate an operation in the Atlantic.
