    Well that was a lot of hard work but did get there at last. Real brain stretching stuff, very clever setting and good fun.
    Thanks Radler

    A first for me with a Radler crossword – I find him really difficult.
    With thanks to him for all his hard work in putting together such a clever puzzle.
