Circa 1976 I got interested in how to compute the motions of planets
and moons. That lead to learning about civil time. When the notion
of DST was first introduced, it was called "war time". It had up to a

Have you evidence supporting a clock change, possibly stepwise, making a
five hour difference? Where?
