Does anyone think this may be Churchill in foreground (with Hood in background)?

Or?


Here's a much higher-rez version in case it helps: https://ichef.bbci.co.uk/news/2048/cpsp ... 960653.jpg

I have a feeling Adm Wilcocks was misquoted in this article, saying that Hood was the "largest" British warship until the QE carriers. She was the "longest" at 860 f. overall , but Vanguard superseded her as the largest until the QE's. I doubt the Admiral would have made that mistake!

Not sure this is Churchill. I do not recall his quasi-naval uniform ever carrying "scrambled egg" and officer's cap badge on the cap.

HOOD is in a relatively early configuration.

Interesting observation re 'Churchill'! Then whom could it be I wonder?
