41a esile .. S extra ( see for scottish sight, s for is, il italian for the ??)
1 A is a thematically affected answer, shorter than the answer to the clue.The 'bent pins' are legs, limbs.

Thanks ros and NAC.

For 1a, what is the word for imbued? And does the curse begin with B?
Hankir, yes, the curse begins B, the imbued D.
Question Author
Thanks NAC.
I cannot think of a short word for imbued (filled, Dipped) .
What is the length of the solution, 8 or longer?

I have the answer to 23d but I have only one letter in the grid entry for circuit. Is it thematic?

In full it's an 11 letter word, hankir - 'imbued'/coloured, is a common 4 letter word and the code for St Lucia is [w]L (the 'w' is extra).
for 23, yes - it's a logic circuit '[o]R' (and the 'o' is extra).
Question Author
Thanks ProfessorM.
That 11 letters hint finally gave me what consumption item has to be dropped before entry.
The same item disappeared from 23d.
Now to find the others.
I may be back tomorrow.
