Narrative

between San Carlos Point (q.v.) and Bibby Point, James Ross Island, was probably first sighted by SwAE in October 1903 (Nordenskj"ld and others, 1905, map facing p.316); surveyed by FIDS in December 1945; named following a subsequent visit by FIDS from "Hope Bay" in August 1952, when there was discussion as to whether brandy should be used as treatment for a dog bite (APC, 1958, p.4; BA chart 3205, 23.xi.1962).
