FWIW, although the main records of double summer time in the Public Record
Office (HO 144/22703 and HO 144/22704) are closed for 100 years, some
military cables (WO 219/4100 - this is a copy from the main SHAEF archives
held in the US National Archives, SHAEF/5252/8/516) agree that the usage
is BDST (this appears in a message dated 17 Feb 1945).
