Thanks Winnie. Got Nos 1 & 12 now. Re no.4 are we talking about a ranch cowboy or a 'cowboy' builder or similar? Once I have solved this it just leaves Nos 10 & 11 and I don't think any clues have been given for these two so far?????
Glad that helped.
6. cowboy as in ranch cowboy
10. 'Plain' as in flat level land, made up of 'has' backwards with girls name and v for virginia anagram.
11. Crossword abbreviation for doctor + s followed by french for she.
Winnie you are an angel. Got them all but the cowboy one. Some alternative words for cowboy are drover, herder, gaucho. I presume I am looking for a six letter word for cowboy to add to the letters: I for independent and RR for Right Reverend? Am I on the right track or not?
hello diday. If you are refering to question 5.

There are only three X 5 letter words in the clue, take them one at a time and see which one anagrams into the name of another river.
