Ferguson Bay

Ferguson Bay is a small inlet on the Southern Thule isle of Morrell. It is in effect the only safe anchorage on Southern Thule. It was here that the Argentine Air Force set up the Corbeta Uruguay base, starting an occupation (and only human habitation in the entire South Sandwich Islands archipelago) that lasted from November 1976 to June 1982, when British Military Forces ended the Argentine presence.
