SCAR Gazetteer Information: Each place can have one or more entries in the SCAR Composite Gazetteer, dependant on its origin. By viewing an individual entry, you may see multiple references to the same place. SCAR uses a more general feature type coding, so each place will, in general, have multiple feature types.

SW of French Passage, Graham Coast, including Maranga Island and Nob Island, were first sighted by BeAE in 1898; roughly surveyed by FAE, 1903-05 and 1908-10; called in error Île Roca (Gourdon, 1908, end map), Îles Roca (Gourdon, 1908, p.29), Roca Islands (BA chart 1238, ix.1908) (Roca Islands, q.v.), Île Crulls (Charcot, 1912, Pl. 4), Îles Crulls (Charcot, 1912, Pl. 3; Bongrain, 1914, vue 17 following p.60) (Cruls Islands, q.v.). The islands were resurveyed by BGLE and called in error Rocca Islands (Rymill, 1938a, map facing p.400; [together with Roca Islands] USAAF chart, 1762, 1946). Crulls Islands (USHO, 1943, p.293). Islas Roca (Argentina. IGM map, 1946). Islas Rocca (Chile. DNH chart LII, 1947; Pierrou, 1970, p.628). Roca Islets (BA, 1948, p.203; APC, 1955, p.18). Islotes Cruls (Argentina. MM, 1953, p.290). Cruls Islands (USHO, 1956, p.31). Islotes Roca (Argentina. MM chart 130, 1957; Pierrou, 1970, p.628). Following survey by an RN Hydrographic Survey Unit John Biscoe, 1957-58, the feature was renamed Anagram Islands, in reference to the previous transposition of names (APC, 1959a, p.4; BA chart 3572, 12.viii.1960). Islotes Anagrama (Chile. DNH chart 1502, 1962; Chile. IHA, 1974, p.26).

Anagram Islands (USA) 65° 12' 00.0" S 64° 20' 00.0" W Island
Name ID: 121775 Place ID: 325

Group of small islands and rocks lying between Roca Islands and Argentine Islands, in the Wilhelm Archipelago. The area was charted by the BelgAE under Gerlache, 1897-99, the FrAE under Charcot, 1903-05 and 1908-10, and the BGLE under Rymill, 1934-37, and the names Argentine, Roca and Cruls variously applied to the four island groups on the S side of French Passage. The islands were mapped in detail by the FIDS from photos taken from the helicopter of HMS Protector and from information obtained by the British Naval Hydrographic Survey Unit in 1958 and the three names positioned as originally given by the Belgian and French expeditions. The remaining island group was named Anagram Islands by the UK-APC in 1959, anagram meaning a transposition of parts.
