Narrative

NNW of Round Point, King George Island, presumably known to nineteenth century sealers, was charted by DI in 61°53'S 58°13'W in 1934 35, and probably named (descriptively) at that time (Nelson and others, chart, 1935c; BA chart 3205, 2.ix.1938; APC, 1955, p.12). Isla Jagged (Argentina. IGM map, 1946; Chile. IHA, 1974, p.163). Isla Dentada [translation of English name] (Argentina. MM, 1953, p.200; Pierrou, 1970, p.307). Isola Jagged (Zavatti, 1958, Tav. 9). Following air photography by FIDASE, 1956 57, and ground survey by FIDS, 1957 59, the position of the island was corrected (BA chart 3205, 23.xi.1962; DOS 610 sheet W 62 58, 1968; APC, 1977, p.18). Isla Owen, in error (Owen Island, q.v.) (Argentina. MM chart 110, 1963). Ostrov Dzhagged (Soviet Union. AA, 1966, Pl.175). Isla Gregores, so called by AAE after Alférez de Fragata [=ensign of frigate] José Gregores (Argentina. MD, 1978, letter G).
