...might well give that a listen AJH.
i believe he was a vicar? which makes the following clue very impressive,

13,15. Friendly (say) vicar at ease (say) with arrangement for coping with 18 down (10,4)

...not necessary to know any background to solve it but it raised a smile (hard bugger to solve tho).

How typical of this dear gentleman to let us know of hill illness via one of his magical clues.

God Bless him.
