Narrative

narrow gap between two rock pillars, W of South East Point, Deception Island, was called The Gap by BAE, 1920-22 (Bagshawe, 1939, p.31 and end-paper map 3) or Ventana del Chileno [=window of the Chilean] by CAE (Chile. DNH chart 501, 1947); following survey by an RN Hydrographic Survey Unit, 1948-49, named Neptune's Window, because weather and ice conditions in the approach to Neptunes Bellows can conveniently be observed from this gap (BA chart 3202, 23.ix.1949). Ventana de Neptuno (Argentina. MM chart 100, 1953). Neptunes Window (BA, 1954, p.33; APC, 1955, p.16; DCS (Misc.) 217, 1955; DOS 310 Deception Island sheet, 1960).
