Hurst Point Lighthouse seems to be the nearest to Portsea. https://goo.gl/maps/JK7BM8Cj9ZkMAbBj7
assuming he was employed by Trinity House.

Alternatively, he may have been employed by the Northern Lighthouse Board - which covers Scotland and the Isle of Man.

Red Sea and Sinai lighthouses may have come under British jurisdiction in the early years of the 20th Century.
Incidentally, there won't have been a lighthouse on Mount Sinai! ;D

Thanks very much everyone for all your leads.  It's amazing how names/words get distorted over time, but I am pretty sure Ashrafi Juzur sounds about right.  After a lot of mucking about I actually got Gt Uncle Tony's naval records as a stoker then signaller.
 
Was wondering if anyone new what the entry "Joined P or RyR POB Y39 6.8.08 means?

Its known that Anthony Samuel Taulbut settled in Canada in 1908 under some migration/settlement scheme.  He went on to be an active and innovative member in the early days of Mission City and most of the artefacts in the Mission museum belonged to him.  He migrated with 52 boxes!

Once again thanks for your help everyone.

Might those abbreviations be something to do with some naval service record abbreviations:

PVR - Premature Voluntary Release

PO/ -  service number prefix for Portsmouth Division

Y39 - his age?  But 1908discharge - 1874birth = 34
