I've just about completed the crossword, with the exception of 105 across -
Flat section of leather - (6).
I have v?n? - but all I can find to fit the clue - sort of - is vane, which I believe is the flat section of a feather(!) - does this apply to leather also?
So frustrating to have filled in every answer but this one - I'd be most grateful for any help!
I think I've answered my own question! Hope so, anyway. I came across an obscure reference to leather vanes - strips of flat leather that flap in the wind for a cooling effect. Right - I hope?
