Hi Athina

My entry for the clue words have gone in, but from memory, Badger ="BLOCK"

UN Labour body = "ILO"

Aide is correct, comes from "aide-de-camp".

Hopefully someone will verify above. Where are you Tuesday? Smile

Hi Athina

Have done a bit more research since my first submission and can verify Mrs. Green's submission of "BROCK".

Here are my references:

Dictionary.com Unabridged (v 1.1) - Cite This Source - Share This
brock /brɒk/ Pronunciation Key - Show Spelled Pronunciation[brok] Pronunciation Key - Show IPA Pronunciation
-noun a European badger.

A badger.

Sorry for leading you astray on my first post but I was only going by memory.
btw. "OAKS" as submitted by Mrs. Green is also correct.
