Thank you,

I tried:

    Environment variable LC_ALL=en_US

    Registry Software/Gnu/Emacs  LANG=en  or LANG=en_US

None worked :-( The interesting question I have, why 20.7
does display the familiar "Jan" but 21.1 des not in the
same machine with identical settings?

This really maked dired very inconvenient to use 
in 21.1 due to ragged layout in w2k.
