HMS Hope from the left

Here we see the Acorn class destroyer HMS Hope from the left, giving a good idea of her overall layout, with 4in guns fore and aft and her two torpedo tubes on either side of the rear searchlight platform. Also note the tall foreward funnel, heightened during construction to lift smoke above the bridge.
