I am fairly certain that this is a 'St. Vincent' class battleship taking part in a damage control exercise, but I think it may actually be 'Collingwood.'

Whichever of the class it is, the photograph has no relevance to the loss of 'Vanguard.'

Loss of HMS Vanguard

Interesting collection of images here including a model of the ship made from pieces of the actual wreck by a sailor from HMS Agincourt.
