Narrative

(1977), an area of fissures in Brunt Ice Front ENE of Halley, was the feature roughly charted by BITAE in January 1915 and called Allan McDonald Glacier after Allan McDonald, of the British Association of Magallanes, Punta Arenas, who was mainly responsible for raising funds (in 3 days) for sending the British relief expedition in Emma on the third abortive attempt, in July 1916, to rescue the Endurance party on Elephant Island (Shackleton, 1919, p.216) (Worsley, chart 4, 1914-15; Shackleton, 1919, end map; USHO, 1943, p.356).
