Discrepancies between legal GMT and geographical GMT[edit]

Why is Spain legal changes so thoroughly described? Any country keeps a time zone as a result of a political decission. I wonder why there is no description on how France got to UTC+1, which is quite interesting.

The so called Presidental Order is thoroughly and poorly described. By March 1940 the decree just enforced a daylight summer time, a commonplace during economic shortages that was also observed during the Spanish Civil War (1936-39); hence the provision for its future phase out (in autumn). Even more, that decree followed similar decisions enforced in United Kingdom and France in Feb 1940. That was a bit earlier from the common practice. Governments were in a hurry as a result of the ongoing world war. All of these decisions came just before the German invasion of France.

The time zone shift silently came when clocks remained in UTC+1 during winter, again as a result of the economic shortages. Noticed, that clocks in United Kingdom also remained in UTC+1 during the winters of WWII. Also clocks in Spain had earlier experienced winter time in UTC+1. It was during the Spanish Civil War (1936-39) in the Republican zone, in the very last winter of the war: 1938-39.

This bracket "(most likely enacted to be in synchrony with Germany and Italy, with which the Franco regime was unofficially allied)" is an hoax and should be dropped out. Clocks were advanced as a result of economic shortages. Advancing clocks in United Kingdom, France and Spain results in German and Italian Mean Time. It is not any kind of synchrony. It is just geography.

Also, for this purpose it should be mentioned that Germany also moved clocks forward by that time. So there was no such synchrony.

Corsica should also be listed in the regions of France which are in physical UTC+1 with small parts of Provence, Alsace and Lorraine.
