Narrative

one of the Argentine Islands, Wilhelm Archipelago, Graham Coast, was roughly charted by FAE, 1903-05, and named IÎles Galindez, together with adjacent islands (Charcot, 1906, p.474), and later IÎle Galindez, restricted to this feature (Matha and Rey, 1911, Pl.3), after Capt. (F) Ismael F. Galíndez, of the Argentine Navy, commanding the corvette Uruguay (Uruguay Cove, q.v.) on her Antarctic cruise, 1904-05, when she relieved the SNAE station at Scotia Bay, Laurie Island, and conducted a search for FAE; recharted by BGLE in 1935-36.
