Paddy de Jabrun quotes birth certificate. Although the ACS Atlas gives a 7-hour differential from Greenwich, extensive research by Dr. Alois Treindl confirms that the nation known as South Vietnam observed an 8 hour differential as late as 1975. Supporting materials include an excerpt of a memoir found online at Military.com by Tom Fowler: I Was A Kid When I Was A Kid, copyright 1997; a scholarly paper found at http://www.math.nus.edu.sg/aslaksen/calendar/cal.pdf and a Time magazine article dated May 12, 1975 entitled, "The Last Chopper out of Saigon," all of which support the 8-hour differential given in Gabriel's "Traité de l'heure dans le monde."
