Two of the sections are extremely biassed. Some of statements are dubious at best, and are probably based on propaganda of the time. If Admiral Hood really had been like this, he would never have made it to First Naval Lord.--Toddy1 (talk) 19:10, 18 April 2009 (UTC)

  • During Hood's command of Excellent there was a major re-arming of the ironclads with a new generation of guns.
  • During Hood's time as Director of Naval Ordnance, the Royal Navy had guns that (in general) were superior to those used by foreign navies.
(Exceptions: (1) Some foreign navies used British guns. (2) Of course for reasons of economy, older generation guns continued in service, where appropriate.)
