Why? 01:24:02 PM is the same as 13:24:05 but both are equally correct.

Mind you it should probably say 01:24:02 PM GMT for clarity

Or 13:24:05z if you are inclined to aviation speak.

Or according to ISO8601 it would be 2010-02-28T13:24:05Z

Thank you Lester and Chris. Most enlightening.

I'm reminded of the story of the new, inexperienced, continuity announcer on the BBC World Service who, after the Greenwich Time signal, declared:

"It's twelve o'clock green witch. Meantime, here is the news."   :o
