TAAF 150727Jean Pierre has sent another beautiful cover from the Kerguelen Islands, thank you very much! It was cancelled at Port-Aux-Français on July 27 and arrived on October 14, 2015.

The left stamp was issued on January 2, 2015. It is part of the “Marine Life” series and commemorates the Antarctic krill (Euphausia superba). The middle stamp (issued on January 2, 2013) commemorates the pilot Charles Petitjean (1914–1988). The right stamp commemorates Bertrand Imbert (1924–2011), who was the leader of the French Antarctic expedition 1956/57. The stamp was issued on January 2, 2014.
