Clearly, the bookletkeeper at T2 was confused. The best way to correct this mistake is not to make the same mistake on the next board but to copy the bidding to the correct page, cross out the wrong information and reuse for the correct board. It would also help to check that the bidding from left to right and down conforms with the laws which require each succesive bid to be higher than the one before.

From a sequence of honours, lead the TOP of those in sequence.
From 3+ small cards, lead the TOP or the 2nd TOP (MUD).
From 2 cards, whether small or not, lead the TOP.
The only time you lead a small card which is not top is from a suit with an honour or two not in sequence when you lead the 4th highest (3rd if you have only 3).
Never underlead an A against a suit contract.
Don't lead unsupported Aces unless partner has bid the suit.
