Description (see definition): Glacier 10 mi long and 2 mi wide, on the W coast of Graham Land, flowing WNW into Darbel Bay to the S of Hopkins Glacier. First roughly surveyed by Falklands Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS) in 1946-47, and named West Balch Glacier. With East Balch Glacier it was reported to fill a transverse depression across Graham Land, but a further survey in 1957 showed that there is no close topographical alignment between the two. The name Balch has been limited to the east glacier and an entirely new name approved for this glacier. Sir Jack C. Drummond (1891-1952), professor of biochemistry at the University of London, helped in the selection and calculation of the sledging rations of many British polar expeditions between World War I and II.
