Names that other countries have for this feature:
Island lying W of Charles Point in Hughes Bay, off the W coast of Graham Land. The name Penguin Island was used for the feature by whalers operating in the area in 1922. Since this name has not been used on published maps and is a duplication of an earlier name, it has been rejected and a new name substituted. Alcock Island is for Sir John W. Alcock (1892-1919), who, with Sir A. Whitten-Brown, made the first nonstop trans-Atlantic flight on June 14-15, 1919.
