N-most of the Léonie Islands (q.v.), Ryder Bay, Adelaide Island, were charted by BGLE in February 1936 and so named because with the island on its W side it forms a lagoon (Rymill, 1938b; APC, 1959a, p.8; BA, 1961, p.197; BAS 250P sheet SQ 19-20/14 (Ext.), 1-DOS 1978; BA chart 3462, 11.i.1980); surveyed by FIDS from "Stonington Island" in October 1948. Lagoon Islet (DCS 601 sheet 67 68, 1954; APC, 1955, p.13). Islote Laguna (Argentina. MM chart 110, 1957). The island was further charted by an RN Hydrographic Survey Unit from HMS Endurance, 1976-77. As of APC(18)1st meeting (2018-05-10) the Committee decided to name this group Lagoon Islands, containing East and West Lagoon Island as opposed to keeping the previous name (singular, Lagoon Island).
