HMS Hood (pennant number 51) was the last battlecruiser built for the Royal Navy. Commissioned in 1920, she was named after the 18th-century Admiral Samuel Hood.
The HMS Hood was attached to the Mediterranean Fleet following the outbreak of the Second Italo-Abyssinian War.
On 24 May 1941, early in the Battle of the Denmark Strait, Hood was struck by several German shells, exploded and sank. Due to her perceived invincibility, the loss had a profound effect on the British people. The exact cause of the loss of Hood remains a subject of debate
