Certain back labels list "Battleship", which covers all the ships. STG181 to 184a [st280 to st328 on this site] are basically similar, depicting a late 19th-century, two-funnelled gunboat with red-coated marines and blue-coated sailors on the deck. The sea is bright blue, and the flags are red, white and blue.
Title woven on silk. One flag on foremast.
by Geoffrey Godden:
All of the pictures are of very similar design, with H.M.S. Magnificent, H.M.S. Majestic and H.M.S. Victorious having two flags on the foremast, whilst all the others have only one flag.
