Narrative

Cape marking the E end of Cole Peninsula, between Cabinet and Mill Inlets on the E coast of Graham Land. Sir Hubert Wilkins, while on his flight of Dec. 20, 1928 along this coast, named an island for W.S. Robinson of London and Australia, which he reported to lie in about 6720S, 6140W. Absence of photographs of this island by Wilkins has prevented its positive reidentification. For this reason, and for the sake of historical continuity, it is recommended that the E end of the peninsula here described be given the name Cape Robinson. This cape was charted by the FIDS and photographed from the air by the RARE in 1947.
