WW1 Wreck

I have a rather obscure question. I watched a show last night on shipwrecks, and the show was about them finding Russian Czar's lost monitor. It was found in the Baltic (I think) with it's nose buried in the sand, and the stern sticking upright, like a fencepole.
Here's my question. If my memory serves me, (which is sometimes debatable), isn't there a RN ship that was sunk in WW1 that ended up the same way? I think they found it in the meditteranean, and were surprised to find it vertical.
Is my memory shot, or does someone remember this?

The ship you are talking about is the Russian Ironclad ''Russalka'' as featured on one of the Sea Hunter shows !

A book has just come out about diving on HMS Victoria, will get details for you

Here it is
