@PaddyH,
Thank you both paddyh and dutchy I actually found parapraxis/halcyon /sleeves just before answering one thing that put me off was I had OLDUVAL instead of OLDUVAI.But didn't have a clue about VERNISSAGE.Just need 4 simple ones now namely 38 ac/141 dn/281 ac and 297 ac which I think is ETHER.I can only blame bad eyesight for my errors at least thats my excuse.

@Dutchy,
Thanks again Dutchy,

I think I've got 3 small ones to get but haven't got the crossword with me, so I'll see if your answers help first.

Thanks again
(When this is finished I can get onto the Big Demon.)

@Dutchy,
Thanks for the fast reply . I'm glad the Stinker is finished now.

You mentioned you are up to date with the Lovatt's crosswords - does this include the new Mega?

I need one to finish the Mega Mix - haven't got the crossword with me but the clue was Snobbish name for Detection Dog (or something along those lines)
I thought it would by Sniffy or Snuffy - do you agree!

Thanks
