(Also, Warspite in particular was pretty well trashed, after the abuse at the hands of those Fritz-X' in 1943. Although put back in service - basically as a monitor - off Normandy, her hull would never again be the same. And I don't think they ever did get one of her turrets [X-turret?] fully functional, ever again.
Seems pretty clear the only reason they repaired Warspite at all was her historic/cultural importance to the RN. Just like the USN went to great lengths to repair Franklin and Bunker Hill - but neither would ever again see front-line service.)
