Well it was during the Hood's Empire Cruise to Asia...
which brought her near Hawaii. I'm not sure if she physically made port there or if she was just cruising through when the USN snapped her photo. She ended up in Aus and New Zealand. I had always been told that the awnings were for heat relief so maybe they were permanently rigged out for the entire duration of her jaunt through the Pacific?
It must have sucked being on a steel ship in Asian temperatures!
