Background
King george v

The King George V-class battleships were the most modern British battleships used during World War II. Five ships of this class were commissioned: King George V (1940), Prince of Wales (1941), Duke of York (1941), Howe (1942) and Anson (1942).

The Washington Naval Treaty of 1922 limited all of the number, displacement, and armaments of warships built following its ratification, and this was extended by the First London Naval Treaty but these treaties were due to expire in 1936. With increased tension between Britain, the United States, Japan, France and Italy, it was supposed by the designers of these battleships that the treaty might not be renewed and the ships of the King George V-class were designed with this possibility in mind.

All five battleships served during World War II. Prince of Wales was sunk at sea when she and the battlecruiser Repulse were sunk by Japanese air attacks off the eastern coast of Malaya.
