Strange that she never made it to the Korean War her artillery could have come in handy for shore bombardments.

I had a elderly uncle who served on Vanguard and it's mainly from his stories I developed my interest in warships and why I went on to play this game.

 

Still there was a story he used to tell me that when Vanguard fired a full broadside the ship would actually be pushed several feet sideways which makes sense but I always wonder if that's true or just him exaggerating to amuse a child.

 

A great article as always I really enjoy reading these historical pieces.

According to this Navweaps article, Not Much™.

 

Though the effect of the muzzle blast to those on the ship would definitely feel like that :)
