    I'd say the USS Missouri docked at Pearl Harbor.

    At first glance I'd say it looks to be a Hawkins class cruiser more or less as built.

    Where is the picture ???
    BTW if are the "navy types" back from our desperate attempts to save Japan and ready for something less demanding (like here) ?

    Just in case there was no picture and #885 still stands here is a nice one, souldn't be too difficult but not trivial, double points for getting when it was taken (hint: there were LOTS of warships there but no Regia Marina ones).

    You're quite right TOS. I was looking at the previous picture. Mistook Java for a Hawkins. That's a nice one you have there. And I, at least, am still trying to save Japan, but I follow this thread, so I got an e-mail that there was a new post.

    Swedish Sverige class coastal defense battleship. The unusual arrangement of the secondary armament - one twin turret and six singles - is distinctive.

    An event where the Italians were unwelcome - maybe a naval review associated with the coronation of George VI in 1937, when the British were upset about Mussolini's invasion of Ethiopia?

    Close enough, she's HSwMS Drottning Victoria, not Swerige. The event was the May 1937 Spithead coronation review as you guessed so it would be easy to look up the right sister. Other notable "foreign guests" (that made the 7th line of ships) were USS New York, the Soviet Marat, ARA Moreno, KMS Graf Von Spee, IJNS Ashigara, HNLMS Java, the Greek Gergios Averoff (only major warship that was also there at the previous 1911 coronation review) and the just completed Dunquerque.

    What do y'all think about me hiding this thread from view and starting new one?
