Hi! One request and one comment please.

20A Drab mark on the French sort of bobsleigh (7,5) S?A?L?T ?O?A?No doubt it's SCARLET WOMAN but mark = scar; the French = le; cannot parse the rest. is there a type of bobsleigh called WOMAN? Cannot find it. Am I missing something obvious?

Comment.
I feel sure 3A should read:-
For vegetable fricassee get chopped parsnip (6,3)

Have you tried it Tony?

hi Jolaln
scar + le(French) + two man (two man bobsleigh) At least that is now I worked it out. J x
(I had to look up drab for the alternative meaning if you see what I mean !)

EEK! AB.

I feel such a fool. Couldn't see the wood for the trees. Never really 'saw' the "T". Must have been fixated on the "woman". It's my age!!
Thank you very much.

Don't have crossword. but would the answer be "spring pea"? Anagram of "get" and "parsni"(p) so "For vegetable, fricassee "get" (with) parsni(p) chopped" would work as well?
