Default Date MERGE formats

I am using the following mergrfield in my merge document

MERGEFIELD mydate \@ "hh:mm dddd, dd MMMM yyyy"

It appears on the document as 01:29 Saturday, 09 May 2009 (that is "mydate"
in this in this instance) where the time of 13:29 is translated to 01:29. I
want it to appear as 13:29 preferably but the least I require is that it
appear as 1.29 PM so that it's obvious what time the document is actually
dated. This format works in every other Format() statement I use so can
anyone help me with this please.

Thanks
