Narrative

off S coast of Arrowsmith Peninsula, Loubet Coast, was surveyed on its E, S and W sides by BGLE in July-August 1936, but assumed to be part of the mainland (Rymill, 1938a, map facing p.432); resurveyed by FIDS from "Stonington Island" in November 1949 and shown to be an island separated from the mainland by Jones Channel; named after K.V.Blaiklock (Blaiklock Glacier, q.v.), who made the resurvey (APC, 1955, p.5; BA chart 3570, 21.ix.1957). A FIDS refuge hut was established on the W coast of the island in March 1957 and has been used by FIDS/BAS field parties since that time. Isla Blaiklock (Chile. DNH, 1962, p.196; IHA, 1974, p.48).
