A coastal range approximately 45km wide on a line from Clem Nunatak to Mount Marvel, tapering to 18km between Cape Teall and Cape Timberlake at the coast, lying west of Moore Bay along the west side of the Ross Ice Shelf. The range has many steep sharp peaks, and Mount Harmsworth, Mount Speyer and Mount Dawson-Lambton are peaks in this range. Mount Harmsworth, 2747m high, is the highest point.
Probably named after the training ship in the Thames, in which many officers of early Antarctic expeditions trained. Discovered by the British National Antarctic Expedition (Discovery Expedition, BrNAE), 1901-04. The name seems to have been first applied on the charts of the British Antarctic Expedition (Nimrod expedition, BAE), 1907-09.
