-H.M.S. Hood Crew Information-
H.M.S. Hood Crew List
Updated 17-Apr-2010

It is estimated that as many as 9,000 men served aboard the "Mighty Hood" during the operational portion of her 21 year career. Unfortunately, there is no surviving official single listing of ALL men who served in her. Here you will find our attempt at creating such a listing. We are using the few, fragmentary crew lists known to exist, Navy Lists, various official reports, public records, and most importantly of all, inputs from the families of former crew.

Biographical Information: Albert or Bert as he was known, was born on 5 April 1904. He joined as a boy on HMS Impregnable on 17 Aug 1920. He served in the Royal Navy until he was released, as a Petty Officer, to shore in class A, on 10 Mar 1947. During his service career he had 42 HMS postings of which I have the details. The majority of these from about 1936 were on submarines. His home town was Portsmouth. His wife was Eleanor Lillian Stride. His parents were Louisa Ann and Ernest Stride. He was 32 years old when he left HMS Hood. He died in the mid - 1960s. He was awarded 3 Good Conduct badges and the Long Service and good Conduct Medal. (19 Sept 1937). I do have three photographs of him in uniform but unfortunately have none that are connected with HMS Hood. I also sadly have no details of what happened during the time he served on HMS Hood.
