British maritime law required belligerents from the same country finding themselves in the same British port, in this case Southampton, could only leave the port separated by no less than 24 hours. In the version on the left the banner reads, "Now then you Villains sheer off" requiring USS Tuscarora to remain at Southampton for at least 24 hours after CSS Nashville had departed. On the right the carton is flipped over 180°s and the banner reads "All right my lads, I'll protect ye." Allowing CSS Nashville at least 24 hours head start before USS Tuscarora would be allowed to leave Southampton in per3suit.||Tommy Trampp|
