    Henry H, you wrote:
    "The word "stream", as you all undoubtedly know, has many nautical 
    connotations. According to HO 220, it may be used in connection with ice to 
    describe ... "A long narrow area of drift ice, usually consisting of small 
    fragments detached from the main belt, and drifting under the influence of 
    wind or current." ... My copy of this pub is dated 1956."
    Yes, that fits well with the definitions from the period. The "Sailor's 
    Word-book" by Smyth and Belcher (1867) has, "STREAM-ICE. A collection of 
    pieces of drift or bay ice, joining each other in a ridge following in the 
    line of current. (See Sea-stream.)" and for the latter, "SEA-STREAM. In polar 
    parlance, is when a collection of bay-ice is exposed on one side to the 
    ocean, and affords shelter from the sea to whatever is within it."
