Travelling jewels


G’day; My euphemisms when I am sending a small packet or parcel of
jewellery overseas by any method when filling in the customs declaration
which has to go on the front of the packet is always to use either ‘gift’
(it usually is in my case) or ‘samples’ and’ ‘no commercial value.’ In
the place where one has to write ‘description of contents,’ I invariably
write, ‘Metal and stone ornaments.’ Never had any problems. We don’t have
to do anything when the packet/parcel is sent by internal mail or courier.
Cheers, and let’s hear it in the final Company Anthem chorus today. –
