Narrative

W entrance point of Security Bay, Doumer Island, off Anvers Island, was surveyed by FIDS from "Port Lockroy" in 1944 and resurveyed by an RN Hydrographic Survey Unit in co-operation with FIDS, 1956-57; so named because it formed a landmark for the crew of the Survey Unit's motor launch when homeward bound for "Port Lockroy" after a day's survey work in Bismarck Strait (APC, 1959a, p.7; BA chart 3572, 12.viii.1960).
