Island about 4 mi long that is largely ice covered but has numerous rock outcrops, lying on the NW side of Edisto Channel in the Highjump Archipelago. First mapped from air photos taken by USN Operation HighJump, 1946-47, and named Dieglman Islets. Subsequent Soviet expeditions (1956-57) mapped the feature as one island with numerous outcrops. The name has been altered by US-ACAN to apply to the single island. Named by US-ACAN for E.D. Dieglman, air crewman on USN Operation HighJump photographic flights in this area in 1946-47.
