Sync'd calendar events at right time, but shows GMT note

I subscribed to a sync calendar and the Stake and Ward events show properly in my calendar. With one exception: ipad, version 8.3.1 calendar. I see a comment that lists the time for the event and it lists the GMT time, not the real time.

Any ideas why it shows this note, and why it is GMT?

I believe the sync file is all in GMT. And it appears to be the iPad is correctly translating it to your time zone. So, the question is, why does the iPad feel it necessary to give you the time in GMT? You might check the options on your tablet and see if you can disable it. I checked a file I just downloaded, and I'm not seeing that notation listed in the file anywhere. So I don't think the file is making your iPad display it. It just wants to.

I agree that the issue seems to be isolated to the iOS display. I'll look into that side and see if I come up with anything. For reference, the display on my android is without error.

I am pretty sure this is related to a bug in iOS 8...driving people crazy for a bit. Here is more information:
