HMS Canada (1915) BB  (3rd)

    
This the third ship to carry the name HMS Canada was completed as a class of one, and although completed after the first of the Queen Elizabeth Class (1915) was laid down a year before them and so can be said to be part of the pre-Queen Elizabeth era. 

Built by Armstrong Shipbuilders she was originally ordered by Chile as the Almirante Latorre. Launched 27-Nov-1913 bought by Great Britain 09-Sep-1914, and completed Sep-1915.

In effect she was a slightly enlarged Iron Duke Class (1914) but with 14in guns instead of 13.5in guns. She was a fast ship and a welcome addition to the Fleet.

She served with the Grand Fleet throughout WW1, was in action at Jutland but undamaged.

Resold to Chile May-1920 as the Almirante Latorre.

Broken up in Japan 1959.

Won the Battle Honour: Jutland 1916.
