rising 13m above sea level between Millerand Island and Neny Island, Marguerite Bay, Fallières Coast, were roughly charted by BGLE in 1936. Following survey by FIDS from "Stonington Island" in 1947, the name Reference Islet was applied to the largest of the four islands and rocks in this group, because it formed a convenient reference point for survey work and for noting the progress of summer break-up of the ice (APC, 1955, p.17).
