Corn

FOUND IN:

North American readers of the British version of SARUM, and of some American printings, may be surprised by a reference to 'corn' being cultivated in England in early times. 'Corn', in the American sense of the term, is in Britain called 'maize', which came to Europe much later from the New World. But 'corn' in British usage means the same as 'grain' in North American usage - a generic term covering wheat, barley, oats etc - and that is what is intended in the British version of SARUM.

Until World War II, France was on the same time zone as London. After occupying the country in 1940, Germany forced France to conform with Berlin time, and this change has never been canceled.
