Hello Val - I spent a long time too trying to fit scabs into te answer - in the end I went wiht rats - later confirmed by Tony who is a much more reloiabe source than me! There is a short EV thread about two pages back if you are interested

PS fitting in the 3 letter words is a good start

Many thanks to all who helped with strikebreakers - in spite of always telling myself not to stick with something which obviously won't work I was determined it must be scabs.......

Jon, Anasarca (type of oedema) and few (last letters) stairs is the "extra" word.
