    10. Save and print 5 copies. Sign 3 of them and put them in a clear pocket. Put the airwaybill in on top.
    11. Katherine only:
      1. put a sheet on top, covering the airwaybill saying, “DHL Express 301 Bagot Road Coconut Grove. Hold for collection”.
    12. 1 unsigned copy of the declaration goes in the box, on top of the foam before closing the box. Last copy for your records.
  6. Please email the airwaybill number to Brett. A scan would be perfect if you can.
  7. Please update the list of remaining module VSNs on the wiki. eg usn-0030/2000/1024. At the end of the line for the disk you have just sent, pu the experiment name, the airwaybill number and the date. Here are the links to the relevant pages:
