    Hm. The observations you quote are consistent with the
    current description in tzdb which uses UT + 08 h
    instead of UT + 07 h from 1947-04-01 until various dates
    (between 1953 to 1955) in former French Indochina. So
    all of Indochina used the same civil time in 1951.

    And then there is the book referenced in tzdb for Vietnam
    with positive evidence.
