Narrative

Shoals approximately 1 km by 0.5 km in extent, north-west of Detaille Island, Loubet Coast. The northern limit of the shoals is approximately 66° 51' 45" S, the eastern limit approximately 66° 46' 00" W, the western limit 66° 48' 30" W and down to the northern coast of the island. Named after Captain John B. Marshall, master of the RRS Bransfield (1992-1999) and then the RRS Ernest Shackleton (1999-2012), for his contribution to Antarctic logistics. Captain Marshall discovered the shoal when the RRS Ernest Shackleton was anchored off Detaille Island, whilst looking for safe access to Detaille Island Hut in order to carry out restoration there.
