Royal Oak?

A battleship in the Flow? Is this a picture of the Royal Oak with the cliffs of Gaitnip in the background? If so could it be a rare picture showing the ship shortly before being sunk.'

It looks like it could be a Revenge class battleship which is what the Royal oak was. It's after the renovation.
