Narrative

between Roman Four Promontory and Red Rock Ridge, Marguerite Bay, Fallières Coast. The area was roughly charted from a distance by FAE, 1908-10, in January 1909, when the name Fiord Neny (Charcot, 1912, Pl.1) or Fjord Neny (Bongrain, 1914, vue 35 following p.60), probably after a supporter of the expedition, was applied to what was believed to be an extensive fjord running SE from the S side of Square Bay. Neny Fd., referring to the FAE feature (BA chart 3175, 9.x.1914). Following reconnaissance flights and ground survey by BGLE in 1936, the name Neny Fjord was applied to the present feature as being the only large fjord in the area (Rymill, 1938a, p.307-08 and map facing p.432; APC, 1955, p.15; DCS 601 sheet 68 66, 1955).
