HMS Royal Sovereign. One of the less-storied old R-class battleships active during WWII, the warship nonetheless constitutes a handsome profile. This appears to be during the late 1930s after her stern catapult was deleted, though it may be earlier in the decade. Smaller and slower than the preceding QE-class, the Rs were not modernized during the inter-war period; Royal Sovereign therefore spent her career with limited combat exposure, missing Jutland during WWI for lack of experience, and missing early Mediterranean engagements during the second World War due to her lack of speed. The ship spent some time in Norfolk for refit during the latter war, and was transferred to the Soviet Navy later; she was returned to the British in 1949 in a state of disrepair. Without ever seeing front-line combat, she was scrapped following her repossession.

Royal Sovereign and her sisters, even with their added anti-torpedo bulge right at the waterline, nearly made my Top 10 list (#hazegreytop10)at the beginning of the year. Classic straight-stem looks, with a strong single stack and a balanced foremast, lend an aura of pride to her design that’s characteristic of the prime years of Royal Navy battleships during the 1910s. This image has been cleaned up, but I do not know by whom. This has been an insanely busy week, which I rarely use as an excuse for getting derailed, but I hope this photo is sufficient apology... it certainly gives me some pause to look at!
