Narrative

Group of small islands lying just off the W side of Chavez Island, 0.5 mi SW of Link Stack, off the W coast of Graham Land. Charted by the BGLE under Rymill, 1934-37. So named by the UK-APC in 1959 because these islands provided sheltered camping sites for FIDS sledging parties from the Prospect Point station in 1957, and there are several small boat anchorages which were used by the British Naval Hydrographic Survey Unit's motor-launch in 1957-58.
