This is one of Orient Line's ships of the 1920s: ORAMA, ORONSAY, OTRANTO, ORFORD, or ORONTES.

For sure, as her bow has no rake, she is not the ORONTES. She might be one of the four. Comparing with photographs and looking at details as the small pole over the bridge and the bulwark with the two openings for the ropes on the extreme bow, she might be the ORFORD.

I wouldn't put good money on it but from forecastle portholes (and assuming port = starboard) then ORAMA is the best match.

I'll stick my neck out and say ORMONDE built by John Brown at Clydebank in 1917 and scrapped on the Clyde in 1952. I know there are pics of her being assisted to the breakers at Dalmuir.
She has lifeboats forward of the main accommodation which the others named don't seem to have although having said that it's poor photos I've been looking at.

I've looked at photos of all the ships in question, and they are all so seemingly identical that it's difficult to say. By the way, all of these ships did indeed have lifeboats on their bows, so that fact wouldn't distinguish them.

I say Otranto, only because a friend arrived in UK on her in 1957 on her last voyage to the uk, and no one else has suggested it might be her!!

Go for ORFORD (1928-1940).

This friend is fairly certain it is Otranto or her sister ship, whose name he could not remember. Said they passed very close, going in opposite directions in the Indian Ocean in April/May 1957.

I think it is the orontes of the orient line or one of her sister ships of the
1920 to 1930 vintage.
