Titania photo 16.jpg

From the Ward Room Mess album of H.M.S. Titania

Date picture taken (may be approximate): 
Tuesday, January 1, 1929


In Kuala Lumpur. Masjid Jamek Mosque was built in 1907. Known also as the Friday Mosque.

Masjid Jamek or Sultan Abdul Samad Jamek Mosque, Kuala Lumpur, Straits Settlements, one of the older mosques in KL, located at the confluence of the Klang and Gombak River. 

Thanks to both moddsey and eurasian_david for the identification of this mosque. It sounds as if the Klang River was a beat of the HMS Titania and/or its flotilla of submarines, given that the album that contains this photo was made of the skin of a Klang River crocodile. I suspect that some of the other photos in the album were taken in KL.
