Top left corner seems to be a name : le C F (Capitaine de Fregate) de Gameau (commanding? ) le Marocain and the 2nd DOE ( ...escorteurs?)
The other signature is clearly the BNLO (British Naval Liaison Officer) attached to the Marocain but difficult to read !

PhiloNauticus,

What are your thoughts on; "Le Capitaine de Fregate, de Garneau" or "de Gameau" as in his surname?

Le Capitaine de Fregate = his rank
de Garneau or de Gameau = surname
