Description (see definition): Small, deeply indented bay, which lies 1 mi ENE of Smaaland Cove and immediately W of Rumbolds Point on the SE coast of South Georgia. Charted by the German Antarctic Expedition (GerAE) under Filchner, 1911-12, who named it for Walter Slossarczyk, third officer of the expedition ship Bay (now Smaaland Cove, q.v.) were erroneously transposed on charts of this area. The South Georgia Survey (SGS), 1951-52, reported that the name Slossarczyk Bay is not known locally and that this feature is best known as Doubtful Bay. Despite the undoubted priority of Filchner's naming, the name Doubtful Bay is approved in order to conform with local usage. The name Slossarczyk Crag has been approved for the elevation at the E side of the Bay.
