From Waythomas and others (2003): "Pumice lapilli tephra deposit (Sandwich ash?)."
Note that Waythomas and others (2001) suggest that Moffett is the source of the Sandwich ash. Unclear whether this ash is indeed the Sandwich ash (i.e. erupted by Moffett and deposited on Great Sitkin), or an ash erupted by Great Sitkin and incorrectly thought to be the Sandwich ash.
