HMS - Hear My Story

HMS Hood at Sea

This newly discovered film was given to the Museum in 2009. The original film is 11 minutes long and shows HMS Hood on speed trials off Portsmouth in August 1939 and then at sea with the Home Fleet in the early months of the war. This short extract is a preview of just one of the new discoveries we will show in the new exhibitions.
