The instructions told us that this was not a pangrammatic grid, so the first thing you had to know was that a pangram is something (not necessarily a crossword) containing all the letters of the alphabet. I remember when learning to touch type many moons ago, we were made to type ‘The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog’ so that’s the first pangram that always comes into my mind.
Congratulations to Anne Skipper who worked out that the missing letters spell the word GLYPH (a sculptured mark or small graphic symbol, depending on whether you are an architect or computer buff). She wins a choice of Telegraph Puzzle Books published by Hamlyn.
