Brilliant Bullfrog - thought signal box was two words.

Thank you too Royston for speedy reply, can you explain rationale behind adam please. Will pick up your reply tonight - off out for the day.

Bless you both.

1. may also be ash = remains.

'a' + 'sh' ('sh' = quiet/mum).

2. may be a dish = an attractive person ??

'ash' with 'di' inside it. 'di' can mean twice/double.

The above makes the massive assumption that the answer to (1) is 'ash' and that the clue to Claire's number (1) is also numbered as clue number (1) in the original crossword or puzzle.

So, 'a dish' might all be a big red herring. If so, my apologies.

Claire,

A is singular, Dam is mother hence Adam.

I coud not Signal Box was 2 words

Royston, thanks for the explanation, I will labour on until finished.
JimC, your ASH is on the button, as the H fits in with Havoc going across, thanks.

Grateful to you both.

Hi Claire,

2. is - A Gogo(have a look at the thread started by Colin under the topic Desperate).

And, for what it's worth, I agree with Bullfrog about Signalbox - maybe the setter got it wrong being one word.
