Definitely a puzzle at the ‘easy’ end of the FT spectrum with many obvious and simple anagrams, charades, reversals etc. However, I am not particularly happy with the clue for 14d. As worded the anagram should be inserted into I C rather than the other way around and the definition ‘learns a trade’ does not equate with ‘apprentice’ which would be ‘one who learns a trade’ or, in N. Am., ‘learn a trade’. Having said that, there were some clues that I quite enjoyed including 24a and 19d.
