Great stuff from Monk.  Challenging as always, new words and unfamiliar definitions of old ones with plenty of misdirection to send us down the wrong track.  Thank you Monk.

PeeDee.

I don’t think I have blogged a puzzle by Gaff before, quite an experience. There is loads of stuff in here to go at.  I’m not sure if I have spotted it all, maybe there are some experts on the subject who can find some more links to the anniverary being commemorated.
