Tolkien Dates in the Shire

Can someone tell me the correct way to write the dates in the Shire...

For example would it be written:

17 Afterlithe
S.R. 1431


S.R. 1431 - 17 Afterlithe

Or is there another way of writing it correctly?

Please someone help me if you possibly can!

Thank you!

The seventeenth of July, in the year 2002

do you see what I'm getting at? I don't think it has to be a particular way. Check in the Appendices at the back of ROTK if you wanna find out for sure.
