Names that other countries have for this feature:
Group of islands and rocks 5 mi in extent lying 5 mi E of the N part of Renaud Island and 1 mi W of Vieugue Island in Grandidier Channel. A group of islands to the N of "Pitt Island" was roughly charted and named Martin Islands for Capt. Martin, Argentine Navy, by the FrAE, 1903-05, under Charcot. Aerial surveys have shown that what appeared to be one large island, Pitt, is actually a group of small islands. As they lie in one group with no logical division between them, the earlier name of Pitt was amended to Pitt Islands and extended to cover all the islands N of Renaud Island. The name Martin Islands was transferred to the group now described in order to preserve Charcot's name in the area.
