between Cape Roquemaurel and Notter Point, Trinity Peninsula, was called Gvas Bay, collectively with Charcot Bay (q.v.) (Johannessen, chart, [1919-20]). Following survey by FIDS from "Hope Bay" in 1948, the semi-circular cove at the terminus of Russell West Glacier within this bay was named Bone Cove after Thomas Main Bone (b. 1798), who as a midshipman from HMS Andromache accompanied Bransfield in HM hired brig Williams in 1819-20; author of one of the two surviving original accounts of the expedition ([Bone], 1821), whose sketches formed part of Bransfield's general chart of the area (BA chart [unnumbered], 30.xi.1822) (BA chart 3205, 12.ii.1954; APC, 1955, p.6). Caleta Bone, referring to the smaller feature (Chile. DNH chart 1400, 1961; IHA, 1974, p.49). Following air photography by FIDASE in 1956-57, the name in the form Bone Bay was transferred to the larger feature, enclosing Blake Island, Boyer Rocks and Whaleback Rocks (APC, 1964, p.4; BAS 250 sheet 21-22/13, 1-DOS 1974).
