Description (see definition): A lagoon indenting the SE coast of Heard Island about 1 mi NE of Cape Lockyer. The feature is roughly portrayed on an American sealer chart of the 1860 period. It was sighted from the air by Lieutenant Malcolm Smith, RAAF, pilot of the Australian National Antarctic Research Expeditions (ANARE) seaplane that made the first reconnaissance flight over the island in 1948. Lieutenant Smith proposed that it be named Lake Winston after his wife. In view of his death in an aircraft accident shortly afterward, this proposal was adopted by ANCA with only a change of generic term.
