"RRS Ships"
Issue date: 25th November 2017

It seems, the RRS Bransfield stamp shows a view from the Rothera station on Adelaide island towards Mount Liotard. The background of the RSS James Clark Ross stamp looks very identic with a photograph of the Russian photographer Denis Burdin (titled: Nature of Antarctic Peninsula). The image can be seen on the website of shutterstock (link), compare also the iceberg right of the ship, the fog over the mountain behind and the sunlight. The mountains are lighted by the sun from the right, the RSS James Clark Ross, however, from the left (viewpoint unknown).
