    spares

    Hi Sir

    RE: Request for technical spares in the workshop

    we are requesting for the spares of our systems to be ordered so that we will have enough spares for backup of the systems.Now because we are now approaching the rain season our systems which are installed to places which are prone to lighting are at high risk of being struck.

    So we are requesting for the following items to be ordered:
    On GE systems we require
    -4 port SLT cards
    -4 port twt cards
    -voip card
    On PE systems we require
    -8 port cards
    -resistors
    -capacitors
    lastly on ME systems we require
    -2 port slt cards
    -capacitors
    If we are able to order this spares we will be able to solve any problems caused by lighting

    Regards

    I thought he was simply trying to order some parts. Should we tell him we can't provide that service?

    Re: spares

    I wasn't aware that lighting was such a problem during the rainy season.

    Re: spares

    The correct format for such requests will be particular to your company so it is impossible for us to say whether or not this is the type of communication your superior will expect to receive as a request for spares.

    As far as the content goes (and this applies to all written English, including your previous two posts):

    - Start every new sentence with a capital letter.
    - End every new sentence with the relevant punctuation mark (full stop, question mark, exclamation mark).
    - Always capitalise the word "I" (first person singular).

    One main correction to your post - the word you are looking for is "lightning", not "lighting". Check both words in a dictionary.

    Also, "Hi Sir" is not appropriate. It is a mix of informal and formal. If you have an informal relationship with the recipient, you can probably use "Hi". If not, I suggest "Dear + Mr/Mrs/Miss/Ms + Surname" or, if you are on fairly friendly and informal terms, "Dear + first name".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
