HMS Hood Launch Anniversary
Today is the 100th anniversary of the launch of the British battlecruiser HMS Hood, the Royal Navy’s largest warship during the interwar period, sunk by the Bismarck in 1941, and (much later) the inspiration for the A&A 1941 Allied battleship sculpt. The BBC story…
…mentions that Hood’s round-the-world cruise in 1923-1924 included a stopover in Canada; I’ve attached below a photo of Hood anchored off Quebec City, with the easily-recognized Chateau Frontenac Hotel (site of the 1943 Quebec Conference involving Churchill, Roosevelt and Canadian Prime Minister King) in the background.
