This name originates from United States of America. It is part of the United States Gazetteer and the SCAR Composite Gazetteer of Antarctica.
A small group of islands lying 6 mi WSW of Cape Gray in the E part of Commonwealth Bay. Discovered by the AAE (1911-14) under Douglas Mawson, who gave the name Fletcher to the large island of the group. The US-ACAN recommends that the name Fletcher also be applied for the group in keeping with the interpretation shown on G.D. Blodgett's 1955 map compiled from air photos taken by USN Operation Highjump (1946-47).
