Identifying context and possibly the photographer of militaria photo

Can anyone help elucidate the context of this photograph please. It shows British naval personnel outside a fort displaying star and crescent. But which campaign and country? Size of image 7 by 10 inches. Also, why the circular shading? Due to lens arefact perhaps? Any help appreciated. See More
