Names that other countries have for this feature:
A small glacier lobe, to the E and immediately below Forecastle Summit, which drains S into deglaciated Barnacle Valley in Convoy Range, Victoria Land. Though a part of the Northwind Glacier-Fry Glacier system, this diminished glacier flows back into Barnacle Valley. The name was proposed by New Zealand geologist Christopher J. Burgess and describes the glacier, but also the excellent helicopter support provided to his 1976-77 field party by U.S. Navy helicopters, "Gentle" being their code name.
