I didn't have a link to the on-line version, so the "problem" is now solved.

Neither did I, but I'm a good guesser.  ;-)

   GMT is the old British name based on the RGO=Royal Greenwich
   Observatory ([9]http://www.rog.nmm.ac.uk/), whereas UTC is the modern,
   preferred international name. The RGO no longer exists as an
   observatory, and it is now a part of the ROG (Royal Observatory
   Greenwich) Museum.
