Narrative

A large valley glacier draining E into Scar Inlet, to the N of Ishmael Peak, on the E coast of Graham Land. First seen from the air and photographed in part by Sir Hubert Wilkins on Dec. 20, 1928. The glacier was surveyed by FIDS in 1955. It is now clear that, on the photographic evidence of his outward flight, Wilkins gave the name "Crane Channel" to this glacier, and that on his return flight he photographed what is now accepted as Crane Glacier (q.v.), perhaps thinking that it was the same feature. Since Crane Glacier has been retained for the northern of these glaciers photographed by Wilkins, the UK-APC has named this feature for Norman A.G. Leppard, assistant surveyor with FIDS, who surveyed this area in 1955.
