jet lag during the war

Hi,

what was the jet lag during the war between Germany and UK ?

When it was 5 pm in London, was it 6 or 7 pm in Berlin ?

Thanks

Hi

You tend to experience jet-lag when you move time zones and stay for sometime.
If your flying back to the same time zone as you left on the same day, then you maybe exhausted but not jet-lagged, as the round trip would be say
around 12 hours on some flights.

Oh sorry, i meant what was the difference of hours between London and Berlin.

I have finally found that London and Berlin used the same hour (GMT +2) during the WWII.

So when it was 18 pm in Berlin, it was also 18 pm in London. This is quite funny since both countries had different hours before the war :D
