Narrative

between Homeward Point and Gauthier Point, Doumer Island, off Neumayer Channel, was roughly charted by DI in 1927 (BA chart 3213, 14.i.1929); surveyed by FIDS from "Port Lockroy", 1944-45; called Bahía Sin Nombre [=nameless bay] by AAE (Argentina. MM, 1953, p.275); recharted by an RN Hydrographic Survey Unit, 1956-57, and named Security Bay because of the shelter it affords from the NE and SW gales which funnel through the channel (APC, 1959a, p.11; BA chart 3572, 12.viii.1960).
