Australian Legends 2015

I often forget to write the correct year when I'm writing the date on something during the first few weeks of a new year. I'm pretty sure this was suppose to be postmarked 04 Jan 2016 and not 2015. The stamps were issued on 22 Jan 2015.

AAT Davis Station

I'll start the year with a cover from the Australian Antarctic Territory. I actually received this on December 31. The First Day of Issue postmark was used on the "Colours of the AAT" gutter pair. The stamps were issued 26 May 2015 but the summer rotation didn't start until November of this year. There is another postmark on the top stamp but the only letter I can see is an "H". Perhaps for Hobart?
