Description (see definition): Group of small islands and rocks lying between Roca Islands and Argentine Islands, in the Wilhelm Archipelago. The area was charted by the Belgian Antarctic Expedition (BelgAE) under Gerlache, 1897-99, the French Antarctic Expedition (FrAE) under Charcot, 1903-05 and 1908-10, and the British Graham Land Expedition (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 Falklands Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS) from photos taken from the helicopter of His (Her) Majesty's Ship (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 Antarctic Place-names Committee (UK-APC) in 1959, anagram meaning a transposition of parts.
