Narrative

flowing E into Scar Inlet, Oscar II Coast, was partially photographed from the air by Wilkins, 20 December 1928 (Wilkins, 1929, Fig.25, p.365); surveyed by FIDS from "Hope Bay" in October 1955 and identified as the feature called by Wilkins on his outward flight Crane Channel, the name of Crane being applied by him on his return flight to Crane Glacier (q.v.). Richthofen Valley, in error (Richthofen Pass, q.v.) (USBGN, 1947, p.219). The feature was renamed Leppard Glacier after Norman Arthur George Leppard (1932-1998), FIDS surveyor, "Hope Bay", 1954-56; South Shetland Islands, summers 1957-58, 1958-59 (APC, 1958, p.5; BA chart 3570, 29.ix.1961).
