Admiral Samuel Hood, 1st Viscount Hood (1724-1816)
A half-length portrait to right, wearing flag officer's full-dress uniform, 1767-1783, and white wig. Hood served under Sir George Rodney in the West Indies and as commander of the rear squadron at the Battle of the Saints, 1782, he received the surrender of de Grasse, the French Admiral. In 1793, when Commander-in-Chief in the Mediterranean, he occupied Toulon. This was his last active service before he became Governor of Greenwich Hospital until his death.
