Great photo! Looks a bit patched up too.

Hi all

Yes, she is El Fateh currently moored up in Alexandria, Egypt as Stationary Training Ship, and the subject of a project to return the ship to the UK as a museum ship and WWII memorial.

Definitely 'EL FATEH' (Ex-ZENITH) undergoing hull survey prior to possible purchase by the UK and returning as a museum ship.

My guess would be the Egyptian Navy destroyer EL FATEH minus her armament & main mast.
Built in 1944 as ZENITH for the Royal Navy and acquired by Egypt in 1955.
It is surprising that such a relic is still in active service.

Hi Ben

This is not Napoli, but the Egyptian naval base of Alexandria.

The lighthouse is Ras El-Tin,
located at the western tip of the Ras el-Tin peninsula, marking the entrance to the western harbor of Alexandria.

You can see two Ramadan class fast attack crafts
in the background

I would say the ship in the floating drydock is
"Port Said", ex-British HMS Cottesmore, a Hunt class Escort destroyer, and she is flying the Egyptian flag.

Best regards
