I used one of the AAT Penguin stamps shown above on the 1st day of this Millennium - in Antarctica!

I cancelled a handful of covers at Port Lockroy Post Office In the British Antarctic Territory on Jan 1, 2000 - the first mail of this century - from anywhere!

They had a sled there and MANY penguins nesting outside, as you can see in the photo.

More photos here -

https://www.glenstephens.com/penguin.html

They also have a lot of stamps, and a lot do get used.

More so than of the AAT bases who have issued stamps for over 50 years. ;)

When I was in Antarctica for the Millennium I was lucky enough to get to a British Antarctic Territory Post Office at Port Lockroy, and hand cancelled the BAT stamp on Jan 1 - 2000 .. the very first mail for ANYWHERE this century: :D

I still have a few of these covers in a box here somewhere.

https://www.glenstephens.com/penguin.html

Only on a BRITISH Antarctic Territory Base, would someone be wearing a KILT on New Year's Day! Penguins were nesting all around the PO.

The little steel canceller was 1930s vintage I'd say. :mrgreen:

There is a tiny room in the Port Lockroy hut which is designated as an official British Antarctic Territory Post Office! "Bransfield House" as is shown on wooden sign below. Rod Downie was dressed in full kilt, sporran, and black frock coat - a trifle overdressed perhaps?

Not to be outdone, I had on my life-preserver from the Zodiac rubber boat! I could not believe my luck. New Year's Day, in Antarctica, and here was a P.O. open - a British Antarctic Territory (B.A.T.) one at that! The 1st mail of the 21st century, when literally few other P.O.'s anywhere in the WORLD were open on a public holiday - and a Saturday.

YES, I franked all my 100 special ice breaker covers with B.A.T. stamps and PERSONALLY, with special permission, cancelled them all "01-01-00 Port Lockroy - BAT" with the tiny steel CDS that looked like it was 50 years old. See the photo of me doing this below.

Our ship arrived mid evening 1/1/00, (despite the full sunshine) just as these guys were closing down to go to sleep. The other tourist mail lodged by our passengers they processed the NEXT day, with "02-01-00" - they told me my 100 were the ONLY mail items cancelled on that day with that day's postmark - hence their philatelic desirability.

A magic day. I presented a signed cover to each staffer who in turn posed for photos in their tiny P.O. (See above)

Each cover bears stamps from Australian Antarctic Territory, British Antarctic Territory, Argentina, The very scarce 1891 Tierra Del Fuego "SG #1" complete country - cancelled in Tierra Del Fuego, Australia, and Argentina Antarctic Territory issues.

There are well over 100 stamps showing penguins and quite a number of minisheets as well. I have noted that figmente has more than his fair share and suggest they should be shared around. :mrgreen: My address is ....
