For everyone but also to tickle the more senior R/O member's memory cells.

Name this ship. Name the port and name the radio station and call sign which this antenna may possibly be part of.

Correct port Barney, Birkenhead. Can you be more precise?

But not Protesilaus.

Peter4447... Indeed a Blue Funnel "footballer"

See more on Protesilaus on the Bellerphon thread.

I have revised my question on the radio side even though the radiomast may or may not be part of the station in question.

From the amount of scribbling out on the picture,
it looks alike a very long name or two longish words
for the ship name.
Best Wishes

Thanks for all your replies.
Santos is correct on two counts Philocetes and B'head Alfred Lock.
Alfred Dock used by Blue Funnel before they shifted to Vittoria.
Mersey radio? Sorry no.
Treeve, additional blobs were added to mislead!
Rugby radio David?? The only vessel I think that would come close to Rugby would be a barge on the Grand Union canal.
Marine radio stations were named from the position the aerials were sited and possibly this mast has nothing to do with the station I'm after which was sited on the other side of the Mersey.

Correct David. Rugby broadcast the time signal on 19 kc/s (very long wave), which I used to receive using the ships main aerial right down the Red Sea and into the Indian Ocean when it was obliterated by static.
Treeve many thanks for the pics.
Since the main part of the question has been answered I will let it run a bit longer with a final clue.
This radio station was active until 1960 and then moved to a new location.
nb I worked this station many times during my BF days in the 50's, in morse.
