Ernest Shackleton Postmark

From Germany. The postmark commemorates Antarctic explorer Ernest Shackleton. Shackleton died of a heart attack on 5 January 1922 in South Georgia at the start of the Shackleton–Rowett Expedition. The stamp on this cover was issued in 2001 and shows an image of the RV Polarstern: Germany's polar research vessel.
