Douglas Bay Douglas Bay is crescent shaped, approximately 1.3 km across at the base of and between the arms of Scullin Monolith. Named after Group Captain Eric Douglas, Flying Officer, Polar Medal and Clasp with the BANZARE expedition 1929/31 and 1930/31 under the command of Sir Douglas Mawson. This is a new Douglas Bay in lieu of the original one which sometimes was not a bay but iced over. Of course Eric did not know of this one as it was gazetted in 2007 - but he did go ashore there with Sir Douglas Mawson. The other Douglas Bay was nearby - and is still gazetted by Russia - but was never gazetted by Australia and just fell off Antarctic maps.
   
Douglas Peak Douglas Peak, about 20 km south-west of Mt Codrington in Enderby Land. Probably discovered on 13 or 14 January 1930, by BANZARE under Sir Douglas Mawson and named after Pilot Officer E. Douglas, RAAF, pilot with the expedition.
