A group of islands at the SW side of Liard Island in Hanusse Bay, extending in a SW direction for 6 mi off the W coast of Graham Land. The islands were sighted and sketched from the air in February 1937 by the BGLE under Rymill. Named in 1954 by the UK-APC for Arthur G. Bennett, British representative on whaling in the South Shetland Islands and South Orkney Islands for many years between 1913 and 1927, and acting government naturalist in the Falkland Islands, 1924-38.
