Time Formats in Calendar: 12hr clock only???

I have a torch and a PB updated to the newest version.  On my torch I have the clock and torch's Calendar set to a 24hr clock.

 

on my PB I also set the clock to a 24hr clock.  But the calendar on my PB only displays events in a 12hr format. with an AM or PM.  I have gone over the options and can't find anything to make that calendar display a 24hr format

 

is this a bug or limitation

 have the same problem, and what make it even worse for me is that I never learn what is AM and what is PM, when I grew up everything was using 24h format

If you go to the Settings Menu, and select Date & Time change the clock to use the 24 - Hour Time.

That only work for the main screen date and time display as well as the default clock included with the Playbook, but if you go to the BBridge Calendar, BBridge Task, when you set up a new appointment/task the only time that is there is the AM/PM one and not the 24h time, which I mentioned before is extremely confusing for me since I never ever worked with that system and I have no clue when is AM and when is PM
