HMS Hood

The HMS Hood was an Admiral-class cruiser. The built starts on September 1, 1916 by John Brown Shipbuilding & Engineering Company Ltd. at the Scottish Clydebank and launched on August 22, 1918. She went in service on March 5, 1920. She was the World's largest warship f or more than two decades and, with her long, low hull and finely balanced silhouette, was to many the embodiment of big-gun era seapower. After service outside the Home Fleet, she return to the Home Fleet on the end of 1939. Hood operated in the North Atlantic and North Sea through the first part of the Second World War and received minor damage in a German air attack on September 26 1939, an event that demonstrated the relative ineffectiveness of contemporary anti-aircraft gunfire. In June and July 1940, the battlecruiser was in the Mediterranean area. She was flagship during the July 3 Mers-el-Kebir battle, the most dramatic and destructive of several incidents in which the British Navy seized, interned, destroyed or attempted to destroy the warships of their recent ally, France. These acts were undertaken on Government orders to allay fears that the French Navy might fall into German hands. Hood spent the remainder of her service operating from Scapa Flow, covering the North Sea and Atlantic from the threat of German surface raiders. She was now elderly, overloaded, and burdened with an inadequate armoring arrangement. However, her great operational value had acted through the 1930s to prevent the Royal Navy from taking her out of service for a badly-needed modernization, and now it was too late. In May 1941, HMS Hood in company with the new battleship HMS Prince of Wales (53), she was sent out to search for the German battleship Bismarck, which had left Norway with the heavy cruiser Prinz Eugen for the Atlantic. On the morning of 24 May, the two British capital ships found the enemy to the west of Iceland. In the resulting Battle of the Denmark Strait, one or more of Bismarck's fifteen-inch shells got into Hood's after magazines. They erupted in a massive explosion. The great ship sank very quickly about 260 nautical miles east-south-east of Reykjavik, Iceland with all but three of her large crew, an event that shocked the Royal Navy, the British nation and the entire world.
