Hi greedy kite - full clue is "An uncommissioned soldier is held outside in the province..." 7 letters. Orinoco must be an answer to one of the clues but can't make it fit.

Thank you suj53 for answer to 25 (sorry to take so long to answer - been out all day!)I understand MM for Military Medal - not sure where S.O.E. come from though. But thanks anyway.

winnie - so is "in due course" and the "e" comes from last of "the", answer is a battle. Still can't make sense of 24, and "snog" did not help for 13, another suggestion please.

Hi kilowatt. Have tried your suggestion for 2.
Anagram of loss or lose(another word for gain) with I (Italy) or
S or E (spain) doesn't work for me !!
Any more clues please ?

You are almost there. Loss, + I + E gives Lossie. A scottish river (Lossiemouth).

Thank you Kilowatt. I must seem very dim. I did see Lossie but it was not listed in my book of river names.

River Lossie is in the North East of Scotland. It is supposed to be a good salmon river.
