Narrative

One of the Balaena Islands, off the Budd Coast, Wilkes Land, about 1.4 km west of Thompson Island. The Balaena Islands were delineated from air photographs taken on 2 February 1947 by USN Operation Highjump (1946-47). The islands were probably sketched during an ice reconnaissance flight from the Factory Ship Balaena ten days after the Highjump photography and thought to be peaks. Named after Sub-Lieutenant Geoffrey Collyer (RNVR), aircraft pilot on the Balaena.
