Narrative

NW-most of the Duroch Islands (q.v.), Trinity Peninsula, was charted by CAE, 1947-48, and called Islote Sub-Teniente Ross after a member of the expedition (Chile. DNH chart 503, 1948). Isla Ross (Chile. DNH chart 503, 1951). Islote Ross (Chile. DNH chart 503, 1959; IHA, 1974, p.248). Following geological work by a USARP field party from the University of Wisconsin, the island was named Link Island after David A. Link, a member of the field party in 1960-61, this name avoiding possible confusion with James Ross Island (Halpern, 1964, map p.335; APC, 1986, p.3).
