E of Borge Point (q.v.), Mikkelsen Harbour, Trinity Island, were charted by Borge (chart, ). Following a survey by CAE, 1951-52, one of the islands was called Islote Gastón, probably after Gastón Kulczewski Silva, commanding "Base Prat" at the time (Chile. DNH, 1962, p.134; IHA, 1974, p.135), and the N-most and largest island was called Islote Leucotón after the expedition patrol ship Leucotón (Chile. DNH, 1962, p.134; IHA, 1974, p.183). Following air photography by FIDASE in 1956, the four small islands were named descriptively Tetrad Islands (APC, 1960, p.7; BA chart 3560, 7.iv.1961). Islote Entrada [=entrance islet], referring to the S-most island (Pierrou, 1970, p.442). Isla Gastón, as rejected form (Chile. IHA, 1974, p.135). Tetras [sic] Islands (BA, 1974, p.180).
