On Frederick Dibblee's service record, from March 1894 to March 1896, he was serving on HMS Wye "for Ascension". There is a note "Erected telephone between George Town and Green Mountain. 1896 – Penelope, coastal defence ship borne for service at Ascension." Here are a map of Ascension, and a drawing of the Commodore's Cottage, Ascension. The second is dated 20th May 1894.
This looks like a postcard which Frederick used for some doodles.
Here are the doodles on the front.
