This reminds me that my aunt was registered in Saskatchewan Canada by Henry
Bustard,( my Fermangh grandfather) He said she was born April 2. He didn't
want her born on April Fool's day. She might have been born close to
midnight, but my aunt always told the story as written above.

My mother was born at midnight and was never certain if her birthday was
18th of June or the 19th until she got her Birth Cert at the age of 16
she started to Work on the Great Northern Railway, and confirmed her birth
as 19th June 1901.
Grandfather had written her into the Bible as born on 18th June at
Yes even in the forces there is no such time as midnight. It was either
23.59 hrs or 00.01 hrs, for a charge sheet.
The two most important minutes of any two days were one minute before or
minute after midnight. Midnight did not exist..
