Gill,

John (from Arran) is giving you clever clues e.g.

Dolly the sheep was a CLONE the solid object being a CONE. That's how I read it.

May be UNDERPIN but AJT and John from Arran need to confirm that if they would be so kind.

Many thanks to all of you, I would never have got either of them on my own. Thanks again.

I thought 1d was a bit unfair as L is not a recognised abbreviation for LOST.

10a is UNPIN (disconnect) around DER (the, German) although John's alternative clue is better (apart from "solidify" as the definition).
