May 03 – Codewords 1291 has now been changed

Late news – Mrs BD, optimistically confident that the Codewords couldn’t be wrong again this week, has found that it is wrong!
Yes, that’s right, there’s a problem with the squares numbered 1 yet again.

May 02 – 14.30 – Giant GK 12260 is available online now!

What is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.

Well – you will have plenty of time to stand and stare today without your regular diet of Saturday’s Giant GK Crossword!

But wait, help is at hand.
Look, here’s a scan.

Using a notation similar to that used for the chessboard, each square is identified with a unique letter/number pair. The vertical columns are labeled A through M (from the left) and the horizontal rows are numbered from 1 to 13 (from the top). Each square of the crossword is uniquely identified by its column letter and row number.

For Codewords No 1291, on the grid published online,  Mrs BD reports:

E3, J11 and K11 should be numbered 2 (not 1).

    Um – you’re right Rollo, I should have looked at it before posting. That’ll teach me (but probably won’t)!
