The Naval Dockyard plans that I have show the building was to be constructed in 1863-64 and it was to be used as a: "Victualing Store with Officers and Artisans Quarters Over"

In WW2 the BAAG reported the building was being used as Japanese Police Quarters. Source

Post War Plans show the building as a Chargeman's Mess. Source

The 1950's city plan show the buildings as Quarters and Stores, which was their use for the majority of their existence 

The photos below show the building being demolished, they are dated 01 March 1973.
