Description (see definition): Glacier 6 mi long, flowing N from the vicinity of Mount Paterson into Royal Bay on the N coast of South Georgia. Surveyed by the South Georgia Survey (SGS), 1951-52. The name Bruce Glacier was used unofficially by the British South Georgia Expedition, 1954-55, but a number of Antarctic features are named for Dr. William S. Bruce. The UK Antarctic Place-names Committee (UK-APC) recommended in 1957 that the glacier be named for Dr. Edward Hindle, British zoologist who, as Honorary Secretary of the Royal Geographical Society, was of great assistance to the South Georgia Survey expeditions.
