H.M.S. Hood Crew Information
Updated 06-May-2014

Though mighty, the battle cruiser H.M.S. Hood was nothing without the many men it took to design, built and operate her. They were and are the very heart and soul of the ship. It is estimated that as many as 15,000 men may have served in her from 1920–1941. Over 1,400 of these died while building or serving in her. You can learn more about these men here.
