Many thanks, jollyroger66, NACW, hankir ! I got 27(D), not the others, but will stick with it. Getting the heroes will be my thrill!
You won't need much more than a Mo for that.
Matakari, your 'research in the offing' is rather grand - there will be very little for you to do! And Pabulum's puzzles are always worth a bit of effort, I'm sure you'd have managed - and got the thrill, the satisfaction....
Agreed NACW. This is trademark Pabulum. I was very lucky with this one as It is a subject with which I am very familiar even down to what links the four. That is very cleverly indicated.
Matakari, Good luck with the rest of this. I hope our enthusiasm - for Pabulum - rubs off on you the next time you're faced with one of his.
Novalis that is very witty. i have done it all bar the following query.I am stuck on 37 across. Sound of dated plane (4). I have SOA?

Maybe the S is wrong but i think 37D is SOWLE
Any help gratefully received
what an amazing coincidence about the 4 knights?!

Plane, fly high....
Sorry, and forgot to say that the 'sound of' is a sounds like, for the word meaning dated, went out with.... (It doesn't sound like it to me, but in crosswordland...)
Dated- saw.
Yes, Danny. As it was Johnpiper's last one, I was trying a nudge...
Soz nac.
No, it's fine, Danny - I didn't want you to think I was being unhelpful, holding on to the answer.
nac, from what I have noticed you are very generous with your help, in particular to Matakari.:-)
thank you!
rather pathetic that clue!
Thanks, johnpiper. I agree - it wasn't much of a clue!

Danny, I sometimes give Matakari answers to speed up the process, especially if I think we're in for a few batches!
Help please .... 1d. Where to go that's beset by dashing men. (6) l?d?e?
