Description (see definition): Two small islands 12 mi NW of Cape Daly. Discovered by the British Australian and New Zealand Antarctic Research Expedition (BANZARE) under Mawson, 1929-31, and named for V. Admiral (later Sir Percy) Douglas, then Hydrographer of the British Navy. The islands were first sighted during an aircraft flight from the 6640S, 6430E, but after the 1931 voyage they were placed at 6720S, 6332E. In 1956, an Australian National Antarctic Research Expeditions (ANARE) sledge party led by P.W. Crohn was unable to find them in this position, but found two uncharted islands farther south to which the name has now been applied.
