I'd like to thank BigDave, Trevor, Pooksahib, Carravagio etc. for their concise explanations of clues. I have tackled cryptic crosswords for a number of years; my only way of checking solutions being to look up the answer the following day. I have never had the reasoning explained and have had to work it out alone. Since visiting this forum though, I have found out more to the run of clues than ever before.
Big Dave - I particularly liked the reference to the Guardian clue(s) given last week and have visited these pages gleaning the information and who knows? maybe one day I'll be able to finish the Times/ Guardian unaided.

Wombat, you are always welcome. When you get to "a certain age" then you can derive much pleasure from passing on just a little of the knowledge that you have acquired.

If you ever need help with any of the Telegraph crosswords, then come and join the gang on my blog at In less than two months we have built up to over 1000 hits every day, but more are always welcome!
