Narrative

NE of Hovgaard Island, Graham Coast. The NE point of the island was charted by FAE, 1903-05, and named Pointe Pléneau after Paul Pléneau, photographer on the expedition (Charcot, 1906b, p.474; 1908, map p.36). The island was mapped by FAE, 1908-10, as a peninsula joined to Hovgaard Island (Matha and Rey, 1911, Pl.5 following p.615). After the island had been charted by an RN Hydrographic Survey Unit, 1957-58, and the very narrow channel between the two islands navigated by survey launch, the name of Pléneau was transferred to the island itself. Pléneau Island (APC, 1959a, p.10; BA chart 3572, 12.viii.1960).
