I'm sure someone will know how to work this out!

We've come across an old photo which includes some family members. There's a poster on the wall saying Wednesday February 28th. We reckon it's between 1950 and 1975 and if we know the year, we can track down a bit more information about the people.

Thanks!

That calendar is useful

My club's annual general meeting is held on the last Wednesday in February - as far as I can recall Rigga's list is correct.

There are always comments on how unusual it is for there to be four Wednesdays during that month.

Next time it's in 2018 then in 2024.

Tip.

Set the Windows Time and Calendar panel for February and then go through the years.....

A few lines of code gave me the list above, much easier than using a calendar of any sort.

But I didn't even have to bother with "a few lines of code", just a few mouse clicks..:-)

"There are always comments on how unusual it is for there to be four Wednesdays during that month."

There are always 4 Wednesdays in every month, sometimes 5. In fact there are always 4 of every day in every month.

That was my fault - what I meant to say was that it's rare for the agm to be held on the 28th (i.e. the very last day of February).
