Thanks for the reminder, Geoff.
Due to some strange quirk of the software that I've never understood the reason for, the forum automatically adjusts itself for Summer Time, but not individual user accounts. This means that you have to adjust your own user profile settings to get back to GMT.
Go to User Control Panel, Board Preferences tab, Edit Global Settings, and check the 'No' button for 'Summer Time/DST is in effect'. Press 'Submit', and you will be miraculously transported back in time.

Just a wee reminder that you will all have to set your user control panel preferences to 'summer time/DST is in effect' to keep the forum showing the correct time for you. 8)
