Gurkhas is a correct answer, but not the one I was looking for. Let's see if someone else can get this.

Help, I'm having premonitions of future flashbacks.

Only in an insane world are the sane considered insane.

Some people listen to the noise of the world,
And some people listen to the quiet.

Actually, the Mercury astronaut(s) and a few others people during the 60s/70s were on stamps (I still have a few in a book).

Correct, one NM is also 2000 yards, different from a statute mile.....you have the board.

US or any country? "Became" suggests you're referring to America's Langley, which was converted to a carrier, but the first commissioned carrier was Japan's Hōshō, while the HMS Hermes was technically the first to be laid down, but wasn't actually commissioned until after the Hōshō.

US.

And the Langley did not become a carrier (it was a carrier) Wink

Really? I read it here.

"USS Langley (CV-1/AV-3) was the United States Navy's first aircraft carrier, converted in 1920 from the collier [coal ship] USS Jupiter"

EDIT: OK, I see what you were saying. You were looking for "What was the Jupiter?"
