Names that other countries have for this feature:
Two small islands, the westernmost of the Dion Islands, lying 7 mi S of Adelaide Island. The Dion Islands were first sighted and roughly charted in 1909 by the FrAE under Charcot. This feature was surveyed in 1949 by the FIDS and named Embassy Rock by the UK-APC because of its detached position in association with Emperor Island. In 1963 the British Royal Navy Hydrographic Survey Unit found there were two islands, not one as previously supposed.
