'Quick solve' gives Hyke, Haik, Huke as an Arab outer garment. Hyke would make sense as 'tramp'

agree with Hyke (sounds like Hike - tramp)

On second thoughts, could be Haik (prounounced as hike)

I think it has to be hyke, as 27a cannot end in K ?

hi plodder
Sadly, I've not finished it yet. I keep going back to it in between other things. I have got what I hope is correct for 27a By the bye ?

Hi Jazzgirl,

Yes, you are 100% correct with By the bye - onwards and upwards!
