Clued up

Discussion in 'Int Corps' started by devexwarrior, Jun 9, 2007.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. 8 across in today's Telegraph cryptic crossword was

    Cousin travelling round Bahamas at a relatively great speed (8)

    - Subsonic - Now I know our own contributor spells his with 2 B's but here are some more regular users of the Int Corps board in cryptic form-have a guess in open forum or PM me for explanations-some are harder than others and I have put spaces in where _ has been used or where obvously needed.



    Endless sign can make a group (7)

    There's Jonny Rotten!, I hear (5)

    Is he at home?, In Ambridge surely (6)

    By the cheiftain sits the oracle (4 2 3 4)

    I might send him this one! (3 6)

    At first first first then fill me in either way (6 or 2,4)

    Sling cider and cream together by chance mixed-but never at work!

    Where Arthur met a flower, by Eton maybe? (6 3 6)

    Detectives in charge, when counted and sorted by setter is charged up perhaps. (3 2)


    Have fun.

  15. It's a fair cop guv- spent so long on the clues-forgot to check the counts. I shall beat myself over lunch. Still it keeps arrse ticking over the weekend and keeps me off the dodgy websites.
