I found this puzzle on the easy side.     Solving time:  14 mins

Will concentrate on a small number of what seemed to me the trickier clues, but happy to explain others if asked.

* = anagram

ACROSS

11  ABOUT TIME     t = time so if Mae is about time you get mate = partner.

17 LEFT-HAND DRIVE   Dr (doctor) in (the field + van)*

25 L EDGE R   & lit.

26 ED DIED

DOWN

3 TURNED OFF     off is turned (i.e reversed) in effort

4 DEAN AND CHAPTER   The authorities of a cathedral  (cathedra + panned)*

19 OR DEAL    OR = Other ranks (soldiers)     Definition: hell on earth – took a little while to convince me as ordeal but I guess it’s OK.
