Evening Ned ...I trust you are keeping well  :-)).......

Yes it is the original Administration Building at Garden Island in Sydney Australia from 1898??

I did have the pleasure/displeasure of attending the building and appearing before a Rear Admiral [General Manager of Garden Island] over an Industrial matter where 2400 workers went on strike over the manner of a Staff Foreman <*<

They all got over it.....& returned to work O0

The floor is now yours Ned....... %)

No problem Baldrick :-))
I am away from my laptop
and I must get an app for my phone for
resizing photos as all mine accessible
by phone are too large for Mayhem.

Not Bahrain Island, further North but not all the way.  The vessel is a first vessel in a class of environmental patrol vessels named the Lillian Ngoyi , but she's an awful long way from home.  I fear that this might prove too difficult or that you all go aground on it.

NOT the Lilian Ngoyi
https://www.marinetraffic.com/en/ais/details/ships/shipid:878373/mmsi:601741000/imo:9282223/vessel:LILIAN_NGOYI

going by the terrain if its the Med it'll be Cyprus , Crete or one of those Island groups , ship looks more like the FAR group oil supply / rescue boats so could be Iceland or Faroes
