The HMS Ark Royal operated off the coast of Norway in 1941 during World War II. In April of that year, the Ark Royal was part of Operation Demon, which involved the evacuation of British and Allied troops from the Norwegian port of Namsos as part of the larger Norwegian Campaign.

Following the German invasion of Norway in 1940, British and Allied forces were deployed to assist in the defence of the country. However, by early 1941, the decision was made to evacuate these forces due to the deteriorating military situation. The Ark Royal, along with other British warships, played a crucial role in the successful evacuation of troops from Namsos and the nearby areas.

During the operation, the Ark Royal provided air cover and protection for the evacuation convoys. Its aircraft, primarily Blackburn Skua dive bombers and Fairey Swordfish torpedo bombers, conducted airstrikes against German positions and engaged enemy aircraft to ensure the safe withdrawal of Allied forces. The presence of the Ark Royal and its air wing played a significant role in deterring German attacks and facilitating the successful evacuation.

While the Norwegian Campaign ultimately resulted in the withdrawal of Allied forces, the involvement of the HMS Ark Royal off the coast of Norway in 1941 showcased its versatility and the crucial role it played in supporting military operations during the war.
