UTC+00:30 is an identifier for a time offset from UTC of +00:30.

History[edit]

It was used in Switzerland (Bernese Time) until the adoption of Central European Time in 1894.[1]

Known as Sandringham time, an offset of 30 minutes from GMT was used by the British royal household at the Norfolk estate Sandringham. This was stopped in 1936.[2]

The British Gold Coast briefly observed the offset as standard time between 1942 and 1945,[3][4] and as daylight saving time between 1950 and 1956.[5]
