No Cape Denison cover this season
Australia Post introduced a new postmark for Cape Denison that was put into use last year. Every summer the temporary post office at Cape Denison is open for tourists visiting the Mawson Huts and Cape Denison. It was unfortunate that I missed out on this as it was an opportunity to get the new Cape Denison postmark in its first year of use. So early last month I stuck some AAT stamps on an envelope and sent it down to Rob Easther in Hobart with the hope that it would get to Cape Denison for the upcoming season. But there is too much ice in Commonwealth Bay this season meaning L'Astrolabe will be unable to get the expedition to Cape Denison. So no Cape Denison cover for me.
