Narrative

Small island marked by two prominent summits, lying at the E entrance to Fildes Strait in the South Shetland Islands. It was named Two Hummock Island by DI personnel following their survey in 1935, but this name has been rejected because of probable confusion with Two Hummock Island in the N entrance to Gerlache Strait. Two Summit Island, equally descriptive of the feature, was recommended by the UK-APC in 1954.
