Further to my #673 I have now consulted Wiki which gives the following:

The flotillas wore combinations of bands on their after funnel to identify them. From 1925 the following bands were worn;
  • 1st Destroyer Flotilla one black band
  • 2nd Destroyer Flotilla two black bands (one red from 1935)
  • 3rd Destroyer Flotilla three black bands
  • 4th Destroyer Flotilla no bands
  • 5th Destroyer Flotilla one white band
  • 6th Destroyer Flotilla two white bands
  • 8th Destroyer Flotilla (from 1935) one black and one white band

I can't read the number and with my luck I'll probably pick the wrong one. A wild guess, Hamburg.

#693 - HMS Hood at Malta with Spanish civil war neutrality stripes on turret.
Fwd funnel painted darker colour to aid silhouette identification and avoid confusion with HMS Repulse.

Yesterday I said HMS Ivanhoe. It turned out to be HMS Isis, both with three bands around the after funnel. Like yesterday I know I've got the right class, but there's a choice of 4 ships, so it's a guess.

Would you please include the # of the question to which you are responding where appropriate.

It can be difficult sorting some of the answers at times..
