    Re: surname

    Hi there,
    I want to ask the meaning of the following instruction:
    You should write your surname followed by given name in block capital.

    So, if my given name is Gary and surname is Peterson, should I write Gary Peterson OR Peterson, Gary according to the above instruction.
