How about the Tyne? have a picture of her on that berth. "She, Ranpura left Malta in 58 after a five year stay having relieved Tyne"

Yep, that fits -"she returned to service on October 26th 1950, this time joining the Mediterranean Fleet as the flagship of Flag Officer, Flotillas, serving as a Harbour Depot ship until February 1953." From here.

Was Ranpura relieved by Ausonia in 1958?

From the book, "Ranpura rarely left her Lazzeretto Creek berth: notable exceptions were the Suez Crisis in 56 and a month's stay off Cyprus in 58, like Ranpura her relief AUSONIA.........". Spot on Robin Very Happy
