Good afternoon, Kendo.
Yes, your 16afirst is correct.
23ac. Think of someone looking after a Ford Transit!
26ac., Could also be what an army does when it's been beaten.
Hoping this helps!

Oops! "16afirst" is supposed to be "16across"! Error caused by using mobile 'phone to send message. I hate predictable sex!

Hi back, Kendo. I'm fine, thanks - hoping you are too.
Okay, what kind of vehicle is a Ford Transit (3)?, and a synonym for "protect " (5) gives you the leading section of an army in a battle ........
Hoping this is more helpful!

Everybody still bright eyed and bushy tailed ? Grey matter chugging away grand style ? Thought not, but I have one clue to get - well one letter actually, 24d .
u-e - I'm sure it's blindingly obvious (like ute for e.g.)
but is it ? And why ? All & any answers will be either totally ignored or pounced upon. Thanks.

Good morning, Mopsy.
Your example is the correct answer.
Ute is a native American ("Indian ") tribe. The same word is an abbreviation for "utility truck" which is commonly used in Australia.
Hoping this helps!

Well, Mopsy, you have certainly been true to your word about answers being "totally ignored"!!!
By the way, Mamya, the clue was "Indian truck (3)".....
