World War 1 Wreck

I was watching TV a couple of weeks ago, and they mentioned a WW1 British wreck that when it sunk, did so with its bow planted in the mud, and the stern vertical.
I know that there is a wreck of an 1890's Russian ship in the Baltic that is like that, but has anyone heard of the British wreck sunk like that? Any idea where I might find info?

Thanks
 
I think you may be referring to the HMS Victoria vs. HMS Camperdown collision. This was one of the more notorious "oopsies" of the time. Unfortunately, your link only gave me a "Page Not Found."

A rather fascinating story. Thanks for calling it to our attention.
