How to leave an absentee bid on Scammell's Website

As you are browsing our auction catalogue you are able to load absentee bids.  Figure 1 shows the basic layout of every auction catalogue.  Reading left to right the catalogue shows the lot number, description, estimated price and finally a "bid/price" box.
