Sorry folks, I started this morning's crossword well but now I am on the crest of a slump.

13a. Wealthy ruler to put Carl out. 9

(The only 9 letter rulers I can find are potentate and sovereign and these don't make sense)

13d. Greek character overdue with catalogue for collector. 11 ????a??????

25a. Where Jack is at the centre of things. 9
A???????s third letter may be c.

Diolch - Thanks.

AJT, trevor,chrisg and AJ, you are all truly awesome, thank you so much.

I see now where I went wrong with amidships. One of the down clues was "Put an end to said language." 6 letters

I had scotch but I should have had finish.

I am indebted to you gentlemen.
