Narrative

A high coastal range, about 30 mi long, standing between the Skelton and Mulock Glaciers on the W side of Ross Ice Shelf. Probably named after the training ship in the Thames, in which many officers of early British Antarctic expeditions trained. Discovered by the BrNAE, 1901-04. The name seems to have been first applied on the charts of the BrAE, 1907-09.
