HMS Hood

HMS Hood is depicted here running trials off the Isle of Arran in 1920. When completed, this war ship was the biggest, fastest, and most handsome battlecruiser in the world and remained so for the next 20 years. On board during speed trials were Vice Admiral Sir Roger Keyes, commander of the first battlecruiser squadron and her designer, Sir Eustace d'Eyncourt, director of naval construction. The trials were a remarkable success, the ship achieving a speed of 31.9 knots on a 44,600 ton displacement in 17 foot waves with force 8 winds.
