HMS Cavalier ship badge

#1
I went down to the historic dockyards in Chatham and visited HMS Cavalier. I was puzzled by the fact that they had 2 different ship badges for the ship. Both are in the correct shape for a ships badge, but only the red is official. The badge with the depiction of a cavalier is a badge i cabt find anywhere else. Anyone know the history behind this. The crew at the museum had no explanation for it
