Hood's boat deck circa 1933 or 1934
Above- Hood's Shelter Deck (aka "Boat Deck")

Hood's quarterdeck circa 1933
Above- Hood's large quarterdeck & wake. She appears to be moving fast. Fortunately, the weather was good- if it hadn't been, the entire quarterdeck would surely have been awash. A dry day for the "Largest Submarine in the Fleet!"
