Just another cryptic. Same rules, & sometimes concepts borrowed from British setters, with acknowledgements. If you are familiar with the setter, that should help.
Phrasing might be more wordy. As other puzzlers have mentioned, some Americanisms. But on this side of the pond, we have to contend with British terminology. So, I think it's even.
I'll post my solution at the end of the week. The official one will be with next month's puzzle.
Work on it. Unlike some threads where the enablers chuck out answers like pap (where's the challenge in that?), here you will probably get hints. More fun that way.
But, if you have questions, please ask.
I have over a year of these in Dropbox.
If you're interested, I can post all of them. Couple of gaps when the magazine didn't arrive.
