Names that other countries have for this feature:
A major tribuatary glacier, flowing to the north side of Tucker Glacier, from Mt Black Prince and other peaks of the Admiralty Mountains. At its junction with Tucker Glacier it is deceptively narrow and unimpressive, but views from Mt Shadow and Mt Midnight showed that it has a very large névé surrounded by many magnificent peaks over 3000m high. Named by the NZ Geological Survey Antarctic Expedition, 1957-58, for the light cruiser HMNZS Leander which served in World War II, 1939-45.
