What makes you think it is an anagram of beat alum?
Is this a cryptic or straightforward crossword?

The clue itself says it is an anagram of "beat alum" and the crossing letters also have AM?U?A?E. It was a straight forward clue. But with google I am unable to find the word for "Head quarters of British Archery" which has anything to do with the letters "beat alum". That is why I am seeking the help of the forum.

It appears in Newspaper from India. That is why you don't find it in UK.

Hi Bharath. I have tried to find this paper online and it is not available. I assume that this is the new weekly paper launched this year in India. Can you give us the other clues which make up the letters you have so far?...this might help in solving this one.

Hi Chris
Actually it appears in Deccan Chronicle Sunday Magazine newspaper in India. But the crossword there is mostly got from Guardian with some arrangement and some of the clues modified to get the Indian places/people etc. All the cutting letters are correct. The clue itself is straight forward. "Beat Alum" anagram the clue itself says with a question mark? I have reproduced the exact sentence with punctuation in my first mail. I tried to google for Head Quarters of Archery and I am no where near any place which has the alphabets "Beat Alum".
