Narrative

An extensive bay lying immediately westward of Cape Cheetham in Oates Land. Discovered in 1911 by Pennell, in the BAE vessel Terra Nova. Named by Pennell in honour of Lieutenant Henry E de P Rennick, RN, who was one of the officers on the ship and who was responsible for the soundings taken on the voyage. Aerial photographs taken by the US Navy "Operation Highjump", 1946-47, indicate that this bay extends inland as much as 50 miles.
