A similar perforation is seen on modern GB definitives, including Machins, and is referred to as "elliptical" perforations.
Here's an example on a Scottish regional definitive.


I'm not sure, however, if this is the general term for this style of perf, or if other descriptions exist.

Hi stampgal, Thank you for your help. It's a different look and I kind of like it.

Hmm...the mast positions are correct,
the flags, strange models.

Being that this was the 5th ship to be name HMS Victory, is it possible the the first 4 were improperly named?

I think naval history adopts carrying a name forward,
to subsequent vessels.
Check out the "crows nests", often shown as a "barrel" type construction
for safety, not so, you hung on for grim death, way up there
in the freezing cold.
One slip and it's good night.
IIRC illustrated in great detail in Melville's "Moby Dick"
