HMS Warrior - Carrier Deck Letters

Almost 20 years ago I put some some photos of HMS Warrior, that my dad served on, on one of my websites - http://brisray.com/dad/warrior-ship1.htm That shows the ship with the identification letter "J".

Now I've got an email saying "J" at the time belonged to HMS Eagle. So I did some reading and am as confused as ever. http://www.wings-aviation.ch/32-FAA/...-Tailcodes.htm and Appendix F of https://books.google.com/books?id=Cn...dq=deck+letter

But there's also pictures of HMS Warrior at Operation Grapple in 1957 and that's got the J lettering as well - https://www.maritimequest.com/warshi...lection_p1.htm

Can someone explain what's going on? Are all the sites with photos of Warrior wrong? HMS Eagle mislabeled as HMS Warrior.

Was something else going on with these deck letters?
