Narrative

rising to 815m NNE of Cape Lancaster, SE Anvers Island, was surveyed from the E by FIDS from "Port Lockroy" in 1944; called Monte Ancla [=anchor mountain] by AAE, possibly in reference to its use as an anchor bearing (Argentina. MM, 1953, p.268; Pierrou, 1970, p.164); resurveyed by FIDS from "Arthur Harbour" in 1955 and named Mount Hindson after William John Hindson (b. 1935), FIDS assistant surveyor, "Arthur Harbour", 1955-56 (APC, 1958, p.5; BA chart 3572, 25.vii.1958). Mount Ancla (USBGN, 1965, p.92).
