Narrative

one of the Terra Firma Islands (q.v.), Marguerite Bay, Fallières Coast, rising to c. 160m, was named descriptively Hayrick Islet following survey by FIDS from "Stonington Island" in September 1948 (APC, 1955, p.11). Hayrick Island (APC, 1959a, p.7; DOS 610 sheet W 68 66, 1963). An Argentine hut was established on the W side of the island by personnel from "General San Martín", Barry Island, 17 August 1957, and called "Refugio Granaderos" [=grenadiers refuge] after the Regimiento de Granaderos a Caballo employed in its construction (Pierrou, 1970, p.399).
