    No - include the definite article.

    An open discussion will be held at 20:00 on Sep. 23rd, 2009. (How do people read 20:00 in English?

    If someone uses the 24 hour clock system, then it is read/spoken as:

    Thirteen hundred hours = 1:00 PM
    Fourteen hundred hours = 2:00 PM
    Fifteen hundred hours = 3:00 PM
    Sixteen hundred hours = 4:00 PM
    Seventeen hundred hours = 5:00 PM
    Eighteen hundred hours = 6:00 PM
    Nineteen hundred hours = 7:00 PM
    Twenty hundred hours = 8:00 PM
    Twenty-one hundred hours = 9:00 PM
    Twenty-two hundred hours = 10:00 PM
    Twenty-three hundred hours = 11:00 PM

    Hi, Bhaisahab & David L.
    It's kind of you to help me. Thank you. But I still have a question about the following sentence. Would you help me again?
    • I will be on holiday in Malaysia, this year, from June 21st to (June) 26th. (Can I leave out the second June because of the repetition?)
    Thank you for your help.

    You could say 'From the 21st to the 26th of June.'
