Names that other countries have for this feature:
Small rocky island 15 m high, lying in Marguerite Bay 7 mi NW of Terra Firma Islands. First seen and photographed from the air on Feb. 1, 1937 by the BGLE. First visited by the FIDS in 1948, and surveyed by them in 1949. So named by FIDS because of difficulties experienced here with compass bearings, eventually proved to be due to substitution of iron for copper wire in an anorak hood.
