Re. Mysterious island(s) that can sometimes suddenly appear "out of nowhere" on some maps.... I was recently looking at this article on the BBC website: Spain urged not to allow refuelling of Russian warships - BBC News I was immediately struck by the really big island off the north coast of Morocco - and wondered why the British hadn't nabbed that at the same time as Gibraltar... (Looks to be the same colour as Spain???) At first I though it was Parsley island and hence basically just a rock / slew of rocks: Perejil Island - Wikipedia But this is pretty tiny and not really all that near to "there" Perejil Island - Wikipedia Perhaps the BBC have (re)discovered Atlantis and are about to make a big announcement? If so you heard it here first... Does smack a bit of the Sable/Sandy island (off Australia) though: Sandy Island, New Caledonia - Wikipedia Or does anyone else know more perhaps about this "mysterious" island off of Morocco???! And will the Russians perhaps refuel there instead Rm.
