Ship Scale Model, HMS Canada (ex Almirante Latorre): British
1/48th scale ship model
This appears to be an original shipyard model, the ship having been built for the Chilean Navy as the Almirante Latorre, but was expropriated in 1914 by the Admiralty and renamed HMS Canada.
Apart from taking part in the Battle of Jutland in May 1915, the ship appears to have had a very quiet war service, and was re-purchased by the Chilean Goverment in 1920.
