Narrative

off Northeast Glacier, SE of Debenham Islands, Marguerite Bay, Fallières Coast, was charted by AAE, 1950-51, as two small islands (probably because of the grounding nearby of an iceberg), to which the name Islotes Sanavirón was applied after the Argentine tugboat Sanavirón, used for a hydrographic survey of the area (Argentina. MM chart 116, 1952; Pierrou, 1970, p.646); re-charted as one island by an RN Hydrographic Survey Unit from John Biscoe in 1966 and from HMS Endurance in 1972. Sanaviron [sic] Island (BA, 1972, p.40; chart 3213, 10.viii.1973; APC, 1974, p.6). Sanavirón Island (APC, 1986, p.4).
