Description (see definition): Small, rounded tussock-covered island, 1 mi SW of Green Island, off the S tip of South Georgia. First charted in 1775 by a British expedition under Cook. Roughly surveyed by a German expedition, 1928-29, under Kohl-Larsen, who appears to have used the name "Hauptinsel" (head island) for this feature. Following a survey in 1951-52, the South Georgia Survey (SGS) reported that the name Brode (Norwegian word meaning loaf) is firmly established among whalers and sealers for this island and the name is approved on this basis.
