 Notes:
1. This type ship was initially designated as Auxiliary Aircraft Escort vessels (AVG) on 31 March 1941.  The designation was changed to Auxiliary Aircraft Carrier (ACV) on 20 August 1942 and on 15 July 1943 all were re-designated Escort Aircraft Carriers (CVE).   

References do not agree on UK lend lease by class or numbers.  Some early hulls converted to aircraft carriers by US shipyards went directly to the UK and were not numbered escort carriers in the Navy Register.   Unnumbered AVG vessels built for the British (BAVG) appear to be the cause of confusion among references. 

2. British references, generally hold to three classes of US built escort carriers, Archer, Attacker and Ruler.  Some sources subdivide the Archer class into the Archer class (1 ship) and Avenger class (differing numbers of ships) and a few sources subdivide the Ruler class into the Ravager, Searcher and Tracker classes.  British designations note area of assignment.  D denotes Atlantic service while R denotes Pacific service. 
3.  Charger AVG-30 built for British (BAVG-4) but retained by US Navy for training of RN crews.  Appears in British references as Archer class and US references as Charger class.
