I think no 85. is Bob is short for ------ followed by another word for "fellow" answer = a stout robber. I hope this helps!

93. Solve the cryptic part 'a Light Infantry graduate - and another' and that will lead you to the answer.

Sorry, Lizzyminto. Didn't realise you only wanted tips (as I now see, from other contributors). Hope I didn't spoil your solving. Dying to learn the solution to Bobs...etc.
