Certain back labels list "Battleship", which covers all the ships. STG181 to 184a [st280 to st324 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. STG184a - With no title on silk or card-mount, but similar gunboat to Victorious [st324 on this site], with one flag on foremast.
by Geoffrey Godden:
This silk is identical to that of H.M.S. Caesar [st292 on this site].
This silk includes the woven Registration Number, 384379, as too does the silk of H.M.S. Caesar. This Registration Number however relates to the cap band of HMS Majestic, and not to any of the actual ships.
It is not known why this picture was issued without a printed ships name.
