Narrative

A marine passage running E-W from the vicinity of Prospect Point, Graham Coast, between Beer Island and Dodman Island to the N and Saffery Islands and Trump Islands to the S, to the vicinity of Extension Reef. The passage was navigated and charted by Capt. C.R. Elliott in RRS John Biscoe in Jan. 1979. Named by the UK-APC in association with Harrison Passage and Maskelyne Passage to the NE, after Thomas Mudge (1715-94), English horologist who made substantial improvements to marine chronometers.
