Random collection of images bought over the years; copy of a previous post with all images now at high resolution plus a few new ones.
Image appears to be taken moments before the previous shot (Note crew on B-turret and near the whalers).
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.
