Narrative

rising to 2245m at Liebig Peak and extending in an arc from Holdfast Point to the N of Wilkinson Glacier, thence to the vicinity of the head of this glacier, S of Darbel Bay, Loubet Coast. The feature was photographed from the air by FIDASE and surveyed from the ground by FIDS from "Detaille Island", 1956-57; named after HMS Protector which was originally built as a netlayer at Glasgow in 1936 and, after refitting as FID guard-ship in 1954-55, served in the Antarctic in every season from 1955 until 1967 (the helicopter from the ship rescued two members of FIDS stranded on Roux Island in November 1956, Wilkinson Glacier, q.v.) (APC, 1959a, p.10; BA chart 3571, 14.vii.1961; 3570, 29.ix.1961). Cape Rey (q.v.), in error (USHO, 1960, p.370, first view).
