Thank you to both of you. Just started to learn cryptic crosswords and find them extremely difficult. Thank you very much.

Cryptics are indeed difficult but are great fun, still learning them myself, and if stuck we know where to come, don't we? Laughing

Hi Julksy I can confirm Dutchy's answers. Always good to see someone else has the same answers as yourself in the cryptics as I always doubt my answers until I see them confirmed.
Regards and good luck.
