Hood Bell Undergoing Conservation
Hood CrewMany thanks to everyone who contacted us in the wake of the expedition which successfully recovered Hood's bell. The bell has been turned over to the MoD and placed in the custodianship of the National Museum of the Royal Navy, Portsmouth where it will eventually be displayed. In the meantime however, the bell must undergo a lengthy conservation process at the Mary Rose Trust facility in Portsmouth. We will keep members up-to-date as new information and photos become available.

How You Can Help

1000/75 Memorial Appeal
We are seeking photos & information to use in our online memorials to the men who died in the sinking of Hood. Our hope to have photos of 1000 men by the time of the 75th anniversary of Hood's sinking in May 2016. We currently only have photos of 898 out of the 1415 lost. If you can contribute, please contact us.
