Hi Allan. I think some of the fitting out was done at Leslie's in 1927 ish
She was the sister ship to HMS Rodney with a slight design change, (one main gun put aft of the bridge) also built on the Tyne, Because of their size, fire power and time of construction they thought it would never be a requirement to run away during battle so, all the main guns were put on the forward deck. They were both sunk by the Japanese WW2 off Singapore.
