B. Charcot (Charcot Bay, q.v.) (Balch, 1911a, p.86); seen from the air and surveyed from the ground by BGLE in 1936, when it was found to be narrower than indicated by FAE (Rymill, 1938a, p.307, 311); called Loubet Strait in association with the coast (USHO, 1943, p.153); following resurvey by FIDS from "Stonington Island" in 1948, named The Gullet because the feature forms a constriction through which the tide flows between Hanusse Bay to the N and Laubeuf Fjord to the S (Fuchs, 1951a, p.402; APC, 1955, p.11; BA, 1956, p.76; chart 3570, 21.ix.1957).
