Names that other countries have for this feature:
two islands NW of Cape Errera, Wiencke Island, were charted as one island by an RN Hydrographic Survey Unit from HMS Protector, 1956-57, and used for a main triangulation station; photographed from the air in 1956 and further surveyed from the ground in 1957 by FIDASE; named Jigsaw Island because of the difficulty with which the triangulation station was recovered by FIDASE, the surveyors piecing together the available information bit by bit to narrow down the exact location (APC, 1959a, p.8; [shown as one island] BA chart 3572, 12.viii, 1960; [shown as two islands separated by a very narrow channel] DOS 310 Anvers Island, South Coast, East Sheet, 1964). Jigsaw Islet (Bancroft, 1959, p.104). Jigsaw Islands (BAS 250P sheet SQ 19-20/3, 1-DOS 1979; APC, 1980, p.4).
