Ships at sea keep strictly to their local time, known by the longitude they are in. The World Chart shows the local time at noon, when crossing the date line. The chronometers (clocks) keep very accurate G.M.T, thus checking the ships position..Single copies or choice of 1000s can be down loaded on request, own use only.
