Stuck on the last 5 of this quiz and it's due in next week. Any help at all would be appreciated. No numbers of letters are given and the instructions say that the answers 'are as near as possible to how they sound'

eg Laid on top of Scottish own =captain

13 Detective equipment backwards and forwards
16 Not commonly offered up front
21 Spoil at sea a line of travel
29 Telephone a friend ?
31 Before mash (for an odd mixture)

Thanks, fred

I guess there are times when the military uses RADAR as a detection device!
