pike.git/lib/modules/Calendar.pmod/tzdata/europe:157:   # I remember reading in various wartime issues of the London Times the   # acronym BDST for British Double Summer Time. Look for the published   # time of sunrise and sunset in The Times, when BDST was in effect, and   # if you find a zone reference it will say, "All times B.D.S.T."      # From Joseph S. Myers (1999-09-02):   # ... some military cables (WO 219/4100 - this is a copy from the   # main SHAEF archives held in the US National Archives, SHAEF/5252/8/516)   # agree that the usage is BDST (this appears in a message dated 17 Feb 1945).    - # From Joseph S.
