Welcome to our weekly competition to compose a cryptic clue, to be judged by your fellow contestants.
You may enter as many clues as you like and everyone is welcome. Feel free to explain your clue, if you think it will help, or to ask another setter to parse a clue.
Entrants should vote for their favourite clue. Please indicate the post number but please refrain from commenting on entries until voting has begun.
Clues should be posted by 1:00 pm GMT on Friday 10th Nov, when voting opens. Voting closes at 10:00 pm that evening.
