Names that other countries have for this feature:
A sound extending from Cape Lachman and Keltie Head on the NW to the narrows between The Naze and False Island Point on the SE, separating Vega Island from James Ross Island and connecting Prince Gustav Channel with Erebus and Terror Gulf. On Jan. 6, 1843 Capt. James Clark Ross discovered a broad embayment E of the sound, which he named Sidney Herbert Bay after the Hon. Sidney Herbert, M.P., First Secretary to the Admiralty, 1841-45. The sound proper was discovered and charted by the SwedAE, 1901-04, under Nordenskjold, who included it with the broad embayment under the name Sidney Herbert Sound. The recommended application restricts Herbert Sound to the area W of the narrows between The Naze and False Island Point; the embayment discovered by Ross forms the W margin of Erebus and Terror Gulf.
