Narrative

Group of small islands and rocks lying between Roca Islands and Argentine Islands, in the Wilhelm Archipelago. The area was charted by the BelgAE under Gerlache, 1897-99, the FrAE under Charcot, 1903-05 and 1908-10, and the BGLE under Rymill, 1934-37, and the names Argentine, Roca and Cruls variously applied to the four island groups on the S side of French Passage. The islands were mapped in detail by the FIDS from photos taken from the helicopter of HMS Protector and from information obtained by the British Naval Hydrographic Survey Unit in 1958 and the three names positioned as originally given by the Belgian and French expeditions. The remaining island group was named Anagram Islands by the UK-APC in 1959, anagram meaning a transposition of parts.
