Cheers, worked a treat - for the archives on CentOS the packages are:
yum install lsscsi sg3_utils

In the meantime I'd given up and installed omsa - slight overkill for a 
SN! Very useful for future reference.

Interestingly OMSA reports:
Serial No.                : WD-WCAS2208118581185
whereas sg_inq:
  Unit serial number:      WD-WCAS22081185

So the OMSA output is a slightly garbled.
