Names that other countries have for this feature:
Rocks rising 35 m above sea level, lying 14 mi NW of Terra Firma Islands in Marguerite Bay. The rocks are ice covered on the S sides but mainly ice free on their N sides. Probably first sighted in 1909 by the FrAE under Charcot who, from a position slightly northwestward, charted a "doubtful" island in essentially this position. The group was roughly sketched from the air by the BGLE on a flight, Feb. 1, 1937. They were visited and surveyed in 1949 by the FIDS. The name arose at an earlier date because of their indistinct appearance as represented on the BGLE map.
