Spot the Difference #96; John Grove’s Battleship Brand

I know it’s only a couple of days since the last Grove’s labels, but I couldn’t resist this pair. The second one only arrived today, but  I wanted to see if there were any answers out there. Not really hard to spot the differences here, many would say a completely different label, but which is the earlier and in over 30 years of collecting, why is today the first time I have seen the variation on the left?

    Well I reckon the label on the left is the earlier as it looks as if the battleship depicted is of a pre-Dreadnought class.
    Whereas the one on the right looks to be a Dreadnought. I am sure that any ex-Naval types will either concur or deep six the idea.
