Admiral Alexander Hood, 1st Viscount Bridport (1727-1814)
A three-quarter-length portrait facing left, wearing an admiral's undress uniform of 1787-1795, and the KGB. Admiral Hood was third in command at the Battle of the Glorious First of June 1794. On 23 June 1795, while commanding the Channel Fleet, he fought a partial action with the French fleet off the Ile de Groix, capturing three of their ships. This event is implied in the portrait, since Hood's right hand is outstretched towards the action.
