Narrative

the E extremity of Trinity Peninsula between Duse Bay and Antarctic Sound, bounded to NW by Depot Glacier and Mondor Glacier, and extending S to Erebus and Terror Gulf, was surveyed by SwAE in 1902; resurveyed by FIDS from "Hope Bay" in March 1946 and named after Operation "Tabarin", the naval code name for FIDS, 1943-45, which name was in turn derived from the Paris night club Bal Tabarin, typifying night work and chaos in launching the operation (Mondor Glacier, q.v.) (BA chart 3205, 23.ix.1949; APC, 1955, p.20; DOS 310 Hope Bay sheet, 1961; BAS 250 sheets SP 21-22/14 (Ext.), 1-DOS 1973; SP 21-22/13, 1-DOS 1974). Península Tabarin (Chile.
