Thanks to all! Politics didn't impose itself on discovery, then, which is as it should be.

The perfect example of the later warming of anglo-french relations seems to me to be the naming of two British WWI monitors - the "Marshal Soult" and the "Marshal Ney." What a difference a century makes! Can you imagine a US ship be named the USS Yamamoto or the USS Rommel?
