The wires are actually stays for the wireless aerials, see below. When going into action they would have been unrigged, along with a lot of other gear.

That "H"vent on the port side of the Monitor I think is Charley Noble  (To you lubbers the Galley or Foc'le stove pipe) which would be unshipped at action stations to give a clear field of fire..
