haeremai18 - No1 is anag + greek word - an EA river. In 16 you missed out the vital word in clue "arrived" - another word for and you are right about L. Like winnie still struggling with 24 - must be orinoco but why, or am I completely up the creak

haeremai18 not sure if you have 14 yet, but take be out of best,ultimately = last letter and think of a saltire. Whole thing is a mythical river

Thanks diday, got it but I so wanted it to be orinoco! Look forward to hearing from you all with the real quiz later in the year.
By the way EA is not east africa, much nearer home.

My thanks as well diday for clue to 24. I have it now. I too was stuck on orinoco, like bazza.
I have finished this quiz now, my thanks to everyone and we will all meet up again for the next 'stinker !' xx

Thanks Diday. Got no.14. If EA isn't East Africa, is it East Anglia as that is nearer home?

My mind doesn't seem to work very well with the clues although with help so far, have managed to solve some of they. However still stuck on no.1 despite clues about an anagram/Greek letter = EA(?) river. No 6 starting Independent Bishop; no. 10 plaingirl in Virginia etc; no.11 but in Paris etc and finally no. 12 which I know is an anagram. Still can't solve these. Can I please ask for help again - thanks.
