    Consult the Records Description List for the required unit number. The records in this series are in chronological order.

    The columns on each page record to whom the item was delivered, when it was forwarded to them (date, time), the name of the person delivering the item, and a brief precis of the contents. This is usually in the form of a registration number, for files or items of correspondence, or a very brief description, eg special (possibly indicating items such as parcels).
