Names that other countries have for this feature:
S side of Neny Fjord at the terminus of Remus Glacier, Fallières Coast, was roughly surveyed by BGLE in 1936 (Rymill, 1938a, map facing p.432); resurveyed by USAS, 1940-41, and so named because, on the expedition's first arrival, the cove seemed to offer a providential site for the "East Base" (Stonington Island, q.v.) (this in fact was not the case, but the name survived) (Ronne, map, 1943; APC, 1955, p.17; DCS 601 sheet 68 66, 1955).
