Automobile Crossword No 306
The clue to 5 across is "Discharge from car dealt by Swan & Company" and I have S?L?O. I can only think of "SALVO" as the answer but if that is right, I cannot see how it comes from the clue. I can find no reference to a car maker called "Swan" or any motoring reference to "Salvo". Any thoughts would be most welcome.

Hello Dinkypuzzled. I hadn't thought of SELCO - could "dealt by" be a pointer to taking the intitials?. Like you, however, I can't see a connection between SELCO and "discharge" let alone between SELCO and "discharge fron a car". as you say, SALVO is a discharge - but then where does "from a car dealt by Swan & Co come in? Altogether a very obscure clue! I will look forward to seeing the solution published in due course.
