Possibly TAIREA (British India) Hospital Ship no 35, one of three sisters.?
One of the experts will know for sure.

Thanks, Scorcher. Surprised that you could respond so quickly. Thought it might be the Tairea as I can just make out that the name ends in REA. Perhaps someone will confirm that it is her.

Three sisters: Talamba-hospital ship sunk 1943; Takliwa-trooper:by elimination if date correct can only be Tairea.

Thanks, eddyw, and very pleased to have your confirmation. The picture is to appear in my book. I've told Amberley, but probably too late to add the ship's name.

Almost certainly TAIREA as it appears that boats are in gravity davits (TALAMBA,the other Hospital Ship sister of the trio had her boats under radial davits)
