Hi John,

How I saw it was:
Figured = NUMBERED, losing election ultimately (i.e. the 'N' of election), gives you UMBERED (coloured brown).

Regards,
Alan

Thanks for all your help, Jerry, your clue to 2A got me going and I have finished. I did, however, have to visit my apartment to collect Chambers without which I could not have finished it!!!
Fabulous day, again, here!!!
Au revoir mon ami,
Bob

Dear Jerry,
Hope it is not too late in the week for you to read this. Reading your replies I see that JimC managed to buy the 11th Edition of Chambers Dictionary for £16.09 but the Amazon price I am looking at is £20 with free UK delivery (to friends who are coming over on May 1st). Do you know what link etc he would have used to find that price??
Sincerely and Kind Regards,
Bob

Bob ..

If you search on the 13 digit ISBN (978-0550102898) on the Amazon website you will see the version that I bought - the one without thumb tabs. It's in stock and selling there today for £16.25 with free UK delivery.

Of course, there may be outlets where it is cheaper; I just went for speed & convenience.

Best Wishes.
JimC
