Narrative

N-most of the LĂ©onie Islands (q.v.), Ryder Bay, Adelaide Island, was 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.
