Military Time

The Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) and the Canadian Cadet Organization (CCO) use “Military Time.”  While this time format can be confusing to some, it is just a regular 24-hour clock.

If the hours is above 12, then it is in the PM.  Less than 12 it is in the AM.  Example: in the time 1730hrs, the 17 is the hours and 30 is the minutes.  Translate 1700 on the chart below and it is 5:00pm.  So 1730hrs is 5:30pm.
