Names that other countries have for this feature:
one of the Duroch Islands (q.v.), off Cape Legoupil, Trinity Peninsula, was roughly charted by CAE, 1947-48, as three islands to which separate names were applied. Isla Sub-Teniente Rozas, referring to the E island after Sub-Tte Mario Rozas Moreno, radio officer in the expedition transport ship Rancagua; Isla Sub-Teniente Swett, referring to the central island after Sub-Tte Francisco Swett Madge, operations officer in Rancagua; Isla Teniente Horn, referring to the W Island after Tte 2° Federico Horn Wheeler, artillery office in Rancagua (Chile. DNH chart 503, 1948). Isla Rozas, Isla Swett, Isla Horn (Chile. DNH chart 503, 1951; IHA, 1974, p.155, 250, 272). Following air photography by FIDASE, 1956-57, and geological work in the area by a USARP party from the University of Wisconsin, the feature was correctly mapped as one island and named Largo Island, largo meaning long in Spanish and also used in English in musical contexts (Halpern, 1964, map Fig. 2, p.335; APC, 1986, p.3). Islote Rozas, Islote Horn, referring respectively to the E and W islands as originally charted (Chile. IH chart 1404, 1967).
