The names Cap Legru and Cap Syrezol were applied by FAE, 1908-10, to two features ESE of Vauréal Peak (q.v.), probably after supporters of the expedition (Charcot, 1912, Pl.9). The first feature was later identified as Martins Head (q.v.) and the second feature as a minor point between Martins Head and the present rocks.
