Even though HMS Hood images are difficult to obtain on Ebay I managed to buy a few good examples. Nothing really new, but still nice.

Not dated, but the aircraft equipment was only present from 1929 to 1933.



This shot was quite interesting because it shows so much variation in contrast of the ship; certainly not a single tone.


1939. A superb shot of the port side; I reduced this one to 1920×1080 pixels as my usual 1200×900 doesn’t do it justice.


1939. I think this is the nicest photo postcard I ever bought; the original photograph is sharp at 6000 x 3000 pixels and it shows the entire ship in beautiful detail. Also uploaded in HD format.


1940. Footage from 1940-1941 showing anything in detail is really rare. This one show the aft disinfector house between the forward searchlights and is a typical example of the crew paradox: the shot was taken to capture people living and working aboard HMS Hood, but they are also blocking the view to the ship.


1940. A well-known shot of the main deck that makes we wonder if the deck colour isn’t the same as the main colour, i.e., AP507B.
