What is military time?

Military time can be described as a way to express time by using 24 hours rather that 12 hours. It's which is a synonym for the 24-hour clock. It is commonly used to avoid confusion with A.M. It's:
is the time since midnight (00 to 23)
mm The number of full minutes that have passed since the end of the last hour (00-59)
The common separator used in everyday situations is a colon. This is because computers display the time in the 24-hour format in most countries. In military applications, however, the separator cannot be used.

How can I tell the difference between military and civilian time? How can I tell hours from minutes?

So, how do I say military time? It's not complicated and you can remember some rules to make it even easier.
  • Leading zeros need to be pronounced (read "0-8-35" as "zero 8 thirty-five"
  • For a military time, the number "Hundreds" is used. Not "thousands" (read 1000 to mean "ten hundred", and not "one thousand").
  • You might find letters after military hours - these are military time zones. For example, J (local time) is given, while Z (Zulu) is GMT/UTC.
  • It is possible to have different ways of reading minutes. You read minutes usually as a whole number (e.g. 0017 as zero zero seventeen), but sometimes you separate each digit (0017 zero zero one seven)
  • If you have doubts, enter the values into our online tool. We will then show how to tell the military time!

    Military time is between noon and midnight

    It is possible to confuse noon and night, not just in military time, but also on the standard 12-hour clock.
  • Midnight
  • Midnight in military times can be expressed as 0000 or 2400. However, 0000 is preferred because it generally applies to the new day. Digital clocks and watches use 0000. Sometimes, both versions are acceptable. For example, 0000 can be used to mark midnight in military time if it is the start or end of an activity or day, while 2400 may be used for activities and days ending. You can take this example:
  • Shop hours and work shifts. For example, from 16:00 to 24:00, but between 00:00 and 08:00.
  • Timetables for trains and flights. Trains that arrive in the last minutes of a day reach the station at 2:45, while those departing in the first minute leave the station at 00:00.
  • So e.g. Monday 24:00 refers to the same Tuesday 00:00.
  • Noon
  • Because there's no confusion, Noon in military time is more simple. It's always 12:01 (14:00). This is a better system than the 12-hour one, which has the Latin abbreviations from Latin: P.M. from Post meridiem (after 12 noon) and A.M. from Ante meridiem (12:30). The simplest way to express your thoughts is to say noon (or 00h00.m.). / 12h00.m ( meridian ) This expression isn't used that often anymore. In convention, noon means 12.00 p.m.
