Old rowing boat picture

Chris Partridge

OK history buffs...this picture is on eBay:

It comes from the Imperial War Museum.
Two questions: what type of boat are those brave British tars rowing so gallantly?
And what is that battleship in the background? Not British, I think. German? The Reinland, perhaps? Where was the photo taken?

Chris,

Is it a Whaler c/o sharp at each end?

Cheers
