Narrative

between Martins Head and Cinder Spur, King George Island. The name Cap Legru was applied by FAE, 1908-10, in December 1909 both to the feature later identified as Martins Head (q.v.) and to a feature between Martins Head and Syrezol Rocks (q.v.), probably after a supporter of the expedition. Following air photography by FIDASE and ground survey by FIDS, 1957-59, and in order to preserve FAE's original naming in the area, the name of Legru was re-applied to the present feature (APC, 1960, p.5; BA chart 1774, 14.ix.1962).
