Gremlin Island facts for kids
|Administered under the Antarctic Treaty System|
Gremlin Island is a small rocky island which lies close northwest of the tip of Red Rock Ridge, off the west coast of Graham Land, Antarctica. It was first surveyed in 1936 by the British Graham Land Expedition under Rymill. The island was used as a site for a depot by the Falkland Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS) in 1948–49, and was so named by them because of the mysterious disappearance of a ration box left there by a FIDS sledging party.
