    What is the proper way to write the time of day? Are there different rules for different media?

    Re: time

    Welcome to the board, Marked.

    Living in the USA you will have seen the time written as 7 A.M. or 9.30 P.M.

    Here in the UK we write 7am or 9.30pm.

    You can also write 8 o'clock, quarter past 9, 25 to ten etc.

    There's also the 24 hour clock way of writing times, where 1300 or 13:00 means 1 o'clock in the afternoon.
