Here's a question for all you PTers. I came across several PT reports listing a "K" or "King" time designation. For example, 1750K/22.

I realize that the 1750 is military time for 5:30 pm and that the /22 is the day of the particular month. But what does the "K" designator pertain to-- local theater time? Also, read a "Q" or "Queen" designator.

Thanks for the help!

Gary,

Thanks so much. I think that does the trick. I know that the military alphabet of WWII is a little different than the one today and hence the difference.

Best,

Lance
