    It is HMS Renown in the film, rather than HMS Hood or HMS Repulse, because she, like Repulse, had only one after turret vs. two in Hood; and Repulse had since 1919 only one row of portholes along the full lenght of her hull, the lower one being replaced by a strake of 6" armour between the forward and after turrets.

    HMS Victory went into permanent dry dock on 12th January 1921, so the footage (which shows her afloat) has to date to before then.

    Thanks very much Raulongo for confirming that the second ship featured in the video is HMS Renown and not HMS Hood as we originally thought. We've made the change to the description.

    Any opinions on the Renown as a warship?
