Is this a Brit-on-the-wrong-side-of-the-road thing? Do other places do it differently?

That explains a lot, actually... I've had the same issue in other forums, which are also international. I bet they're all dates.

Re: One More Tallship Sank

Most places in the world say the date as day, then month, then year. The US is the only one that I know of that does month, then day, then year. Now my little brain is reminding me of schoolboy French. I could be way off here after all.

Not way off at all. We do Month-Day-Year. Almost everyone else does Day-Month-Year.

Re: One More Tallship Sank

Not to be a downer, but I thought tall ships were square rigged,or at least some square sails?? This is a fine schooner, but is she a true Tall Ship?? To bad she's gone ! not to many Banks style schooners left.

Nope, Wikipedia says 'A tall ship is a large, traditionally-rigged sailing vessel. Popular modern tall ship rigs include topsail schooners, brigantines, brigs and barques.' and 'Traditional rigging may include square rigs and gaff rigs, with separate topmasts and topsails.'
More Tall ship - Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

PS.
Ouch, that quote got all the possible links with it.. Copy Paste

Re: One More Tallship Sank

I take a cue from the US military. Thusly, 10AUG. And always in UTC, GMT, Zulu time. It is so much easier to convert local time into Greenwich Mean Time. Air traffic control and all other pertinent govt agencies, including SAR persons, appreciate it.

Actually, it would be 20130810.

There is no chance I'll take nomenclature advice from an institution that calls a zipper a "fastener, sliding, interlocking."
