Signy Island, Latitude: 60°43'´S, Longitude: 045°38'´W
4 miles long and less than 3 miles wide, lying to the south of the middle of Coronation Island, in the South Orkney Islands.
Unnamed at the time, the appearance of the island was roughly plotted on James Weddell's chart of 1825.
Petter Sørlle, in the Norwegian whale-catcher Paal made a
running survey of the island in the 1912-13 season. The island was named after Captain Sørlle's
wife, Signy Sørlle.
