Interesting photo of the subject vessel sat in Malta Reserve, she still exists or at least part of her does her Tank Deck which sits under the John H Amos and now known as “Portal Narvik” sans any Radioactivity collected from the Atomic Bomb Tests.
The Maltese of course kicked us out and made friends with the Russians who of course promised the World but left a small Russian Tanker moored just inside the Harbour entrance the purpose of which is very strange ;)

Er, where's AUSONIA, on walkabout?
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Submarine_squadron

"5th Submarine Division – Malta. It was announced on 31 July 1964, that British submarines were to leave Malta.[3] Captain C.H. Hammer was last Captain S.M. 5. HMS Ausonia, the division depot ship, set sail for the UK on 7 August 1964, and then paid off. Submarine depot ships at Malta were Forth (1948–1960), HMS Narvik (1960–1962), and then Ausonia from 1962 to 1964."

She was there but given the chop by me, always concerned about picture size on the site due to the number of previous rejections :( :D
