    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.

    Is the time correct on the computer that you synch your iPad on?

    You made me think then lol but the time on the pc is correct but all my location stuff is set for uk on the pc maybe the iPad thinks the pc is in the uk and because the iPad is set to Paris the sync adds a hour

    Is it a 3G iPad. 3G iPads get their time from the cellular basestation.....well, just a random thought...:(

    If all else fails, can you set time manually? That's an option on my iPads (both 3G). I don't know whether the wi-fi model offers that, too.
