    Dave,
    Check your date and time settings - Settings<>General<>Date & Time... then make sure your time zone is set to your actual location and time zone. Tell us what you find after checking this stuff out.

    Look too at 'Settings', 'Mail, Contacts, Calendar', 'Calendar', 'Time Zone Support'

    It's a puzzle, because apps arn't allowed to change the time and date on the iPad, as far as I'm aware.

    No - the iPad doesn't use NTP servers. I'm not sure why. Download the free app, 'Time', and you'll see what the NTP servers are saying. There's also a very informative Information page in that app which describes how the iPad receives time updates (via 3G) but not via WiFi.
