Narrative

one of the Debenham Islands (q.v.), Fallières Coast, was charted by BGLE in February 1936 (Rymill, 1938a, p.12); used as site for BGLE southern base, occupied 29 February 1936-12 March 1937; named Barry after Kenneth Barry Lempriere Debenham (1920-43), eldest son of Prof. Frank Debenham (BA chart 3213, 7.ii.1947).

The BGLE hut, repaired by FIDS in 1946 but not re-occupied, was dismantled by AAE and the Argentine station General San Martïn was established on the site, 21 March 1951.
