Stamp Kern DKM1* with 1958 map in background

Stamp featuring a Kern DKM1* with 1958 map in background, 
commemorating the 1951-52 survey expedition to South Georgia and South Sandwich Islands under Duncan Carse.
First day issue: January 5th. 2007 by

Falkland Islands Philatelic Bureau.

*The Kern DKM1 depicted on this stamp is in actuality a DKM1-MIL north-seeking gyroscope version. 
This 1979 design adaptation differs considerably from the original DKM1 theodolite model the explorers used on their 1951-52 surveying expedition.

I found this stamp on the Swisstek Website under featured Historica
