Thanks Jim B - I just discovered this site and am hoping it will help on those occasions when I miss a clue - get the answer the next day, and can't for the life of me work it out.

Welcome Laura from a fairly new participant to this forum. There appears to be a fairly robust core of experienced and skilled contributers with such notables as Big Dave and JimC who give regular correct, and rapid, responses to requests for help, ( I hate 'em). Slightly disturbing is the DT clique who give minimum info for which non-DT readers are disadvantaged. Still, we're all good friends really

Thanks for the welcome. I assume DT is forum shorthand for the Telegraph?

I live in Australia and read the Australian which reproduces old Times Crosswords (sometimes this causes problems when the original puzzle includes date related clues which are rendered meaningless)

Occasionally I get the courier mail giving me access to old Guardian puzzles.

Looking forward....
Laura
