    Worsley makes a similar assertion about King Haakon bay on South Georgia Island.  He states that the German map of the island has the entrance to the bay off by 1 nautical mile.  Shackleton repeats that assertion as well.

    I mark that up to jingoistic behavior and wishful thinking.   Not with his equipment, not over that short a period (a few days).  However, with a multitude of observations and with mounted, not handheld, equipment, it is possible to determine latitude to better than 1 Nm.
