Many thanks, NACW and Captain2, I should have seen "triste", archaic for sad! The last two to complete this one!

15a Flapped, as short jeering revolutionary Oscar knocks one out (7): ?I?O?E?

9d  Excessively promote sexual partner, missing left-winger's laying? (4-3) O?E?E?G  (OVER-EGG )

Matakari, glad we could help.

Thanks, all, for the answers and the neat parsing! Going to toy a bit with EV 1619 now.

Matakari, glad we could help (again). I don't think you'll find EV too tricky,you might even have seen the thematic help already given on here...
