If a refitted Hood survives the DS and Bismarck is stopped or turned back, Hood would be retained with the Home Fleet, along with KGV & DoY to guard against further sorties by Bismarck (if she survives Rheinubung) and/or Tirpitz. REPULSE would still get sent to the Far East. Sorry Dan....the old girl still goes down..
