Not sure if I have a bug in my Silver Stripe version but I have tried for several hours to get javascript validation working on a timefield element

my current setup within the form is

new TimeField($name = "guests_arriving_at", $title = "Guests arriving at", $value="00:00",$timeformat="G:i"),

every other validation is working, the form submits and the email is sent.
For example I have the similar field

new DateField($name = "event_date", $title = "Date of Event<span class='red'>*</span>, (DD/MM/YYYY)"),

working fine and javascript validates properly and I get the message "Please fill out "Date of Event*, (DD/MM/YYYY)", it is required."
if the date is not correctly entered. I used this code to look into the silverstripe sapphire directory and found that within datefield.php and other *field.php files there is a jsValidation function which gets put just below the header of the page with the form on and is called when the form is sent. However there is no jsValidation file within timefield.php as well as some other more general fields such as textfield.php.

Can anyway explain a way to validate the time input in silverstripe without starting from scratch with a fresh validation framework.

Thanks in advance.

No one got any tips? This seems like a bug if the timefield doesn't have any validation at all.....
