Narrative

W-most two islands of the Dion Islands (q.v.), were mapped as a single island or rock by FIDS from "Stonington Island" in June 1949; in association with Emperor Island, named Embassy Rock because of the detached position (APC, 1955, p.9); recharted as two islands by an RN Hydrographic Survey Unit from John Biscoe in 1963. Embassy Islands (APC, 1964, p.3; BA chart 3577, 14.viii.1964).
