Don't have the paper,so can't confirm anything. However- 17d = F(l)ighter. and 24d = Retinue.

please list the clues and number of letters and any letters you may have. it would be easier for me to follow if each clue was on a separate line. i get very confused easily

Caravaggio can probably claim back something for a plug on his expense account. :)
