Pete ;
If { as I suspect } the 'forum time' on your computer is an hour out , this is because the forum software doesn't automatically switch between GMT & BST.......you've got to change it manually.
{ 'User Control Panel' --> 'Board Preferences' --> 'Edit Global Settings' }

Edited to say......
Beaten to the button by Jane !!  :lol:

Can't be time on the post was shown as 4:07 PM when UTC was showing 16:07 so not due to time wasting (oops Saving).

Ah , but the time on your computer { and therefore the time of the post } would show correctly , whereas the time on Pete's computer would show "17:07" not "16:07" ........don't forget , we're on GMT now not BST !!  ;)
{ Unfortunately , his post doesn't actually say what the discrepancy is }

Yep , I know that GMT=UTC='Zulu' ........my point was that the time of the post would show correctly on your computer { being set to GMT } but show incorrectly on his { assuming his is still set to BST / DST / GMT+1 }
