Another find at NARA in 80-G collection, I came across among photos taken on a high-level USN tour of South America in August 1946, these views of the Chilean Battleship (ALMIRANTE) LATORRE, which served as HMS CANADA in WWI.
Other than the addition of a few 20-mm guns and maybe an early British radar, she appears little changed from her WWI service.
