You do what we all do when we must deal with material written as 05/07/99 or 5/7/99.
Once learned, people are quite consistent in their dating style. They do it without thinking about what they are doing. Thus they are quite consistent in their pattern.
Look through the material to see how that person wrote dates using 13 or higher. We can safely assume that the person writing 13/6/99 meant 13th day of June, thus that same person using 5/7/99 meant 5th day of July.
The person writing 6/13/99 meant 13th day of June and meant 5/7/99 as 7th day of May.
Then we must use other context clues to decide if the year is 1699, 1799, 1899, 1999.
