Names that other countries have for this feature:
between Pitt Islands, Biscoe Islands, and Grandidier Channel, Graham Coast, were roughly charted by AAE from air photographs in 1956, when the name Islotes Buen Tiempo [=good weather islets] was applied to non-existent islands to the N of these islands (Argentina. MM chart 130, 1957); photographed from the air by FIDASE, 1956-57, and named after John Donald Lewis Symington (b. 1920), senior air photographer with the expedition (APC, 1959a, p.11; BA chart 3573, 26.viii.1960). Islotes Riquelme, probably after a Chilean naval signalman (Punta Riquelme, q.v.) (Chile. DNH chart 1502, 1962; IHA, 1974, p.242).
