Day, month, year

I think Bermudians are totally confused by the correct method of displaying dates in written (and spoken) form. Until we get it uniform, what hope do we have of our youth knowing what's correct?

Immigration Form: M/D/Y (the Customs Form uses the correct notation)
Bank of Bermuda clock ticker, and some forms: M/D/Y
Royal Gazette (how "Royal" can they be?): M/D/Y

Until specified otherwise, we're under Britain and we should use British (and European) notation accordingly.

Yes, I've found something else to get anal over.
