Narrative

NW point of Galindez Island, Argentine Islands, Graham Coast, was surveyed by BGLE in 1935-36 (Rymill and others, 1938, map following p.56) and the reef off the point was unofficially called Marina Ledge, after Princess Marina, Duchess of Kent (1902-68), who was married in November 1934 while the expedition ship Penola was on her way to the Argentine Islands; the ship went aground on the reef, 4 February 1935. Marine [sic] Point (FIDS Periodical Report, No.32, 27 Feb. to 6 April 1953). The FIDS station "Argentine Islands" (now BAS station Faraday, q.v.) was moved from Winter Island (q.v.) and established on the point in 1953.
