AUGUST BANK HOLIDAY MONDAY HAS NEVER OCCURED ON SEPTEMBER 1ST. HOw COULD IT?

According to Wikipedia, the bank holiday was on 1st September in 1969.


".... The rule seems to have been to select the weekend of the last Saturday in August, so that in 1968 and 1969 Bank Holiday Monday actually fell in September."
