Hi chrisg,
You've probably got the answer to 22a by now, but just in case you haven't, it's actually easier than you (and I, at first) think.
You need to split the clue into 2 parts (as there are only 3 words, no prob!) one part is a dictionary definition of the word, the other, a fairly well known person, the answer, of course, is the same for both.
Bet you a £ to a penny that you get it!

Good to see I wasn't the only one struggling with 6 down.

I have just spent two days with no internet connection. What a wrench, considering the first sixty years of my life were spent without such luxury. However, the nice chap in India took me through a very complicated series of button pushings, and here we are, back on line. I marvel at the talent of people who understand the workings of these machines. It was morel simple in the days of the slate pencil.

Hope all are well.

Hello chrise. I read your note and I dont usually read the Clue Chain thing but if I have time this session(time limits in the library) I will try and find it. Thanks also for your reply on the previous thread giving me an update on your wild flower meadow.

Meantime I am glad to read that some of the rest of you are having trouble with this crossword.. I am stuck on 4D and 21A and one or two others. Hope you are all fit and well. Speak later on.
