Description (see definition): Ice-covered island 1.5 mi long, lying between Anvers and Brabant Islands at the E side of the entrance to Fournier Bay, Palmer Archipelago. This island was first shown on the Friederichsen map of 1895, embodying the 1873-74 explorations of a German expedition under Dallmann. It was later charted by the French Antarctic Expedition (FrAE), 1903-05, under Charcot, who named it after Captain Guepratte, French Navy. The name Discovery Island, applied in 1927 by DI personnel on the Discovery, has been rejected in favor of the earlier name.
