An excellent (and far from easy) puzzle - even after spotting the theme it was tricky to find the correct entries which needed adjustment. Some nice clues too - with very tricky parsing to be done to...

Magnificent construction and rich in thematic material. Thanks very much, JFD....

Taken me a good few hours, but with instructions still to stay at home and a howling gale outside, not a bad way to pass the time. No need for spreadsheets, and not too much need for calculators...

Title and setter's name (coincidental?) gave big clues to the subject matter, and plenty of thematic material incorporated in resolving the clashes. Interesting clue gimmick especially in the down...

A satisfactory end to a complex puzzle but still struggling with the alternate title and parsing some of the clues whose answers we had to work out by back solving. Thanks, Colleague....

We have no idea about what the quotation is but that didn't stand in the way of completing the grid. Perhaps too many easy clues for a Listener. Thanks, tnap....

What a splendid puzzle - a worthy commemoration for Waterloo. Easy (for sure) but lots of fun, involving some cute lateral thinking by the setter. Very neatly done indeed....

At first I thought this was going to be a doddle thanks to some generous clues, but it wasn't at all. Stumbled on the theme fairly early on but working out the message from the extra letters,...

I thought this was brilliant. Not quite as tough as it looked at first sight, although a lucky early guess at the theme helped. It all came together very neatly and the final step was beautifully...

Nice implementation of an entry method that I'm sure I've seen several times before? Some interesting vocabulary, but nothing too abstruse to deter a first-time solver. Thanks Ares - a pleasant couple...

Excellent, thanks Tibea, and not as daunting as I first feared. Some may be aware, I certainly wasn't....

A lovely puzzle, thanks, Tiburon. I do like a bit of cut and paste when we are neatly guided to the final arrangement as here. Season's best to all....

Gosh, that was a workout and a half! I'm not certain I've got the final transcription right, but I'm not too bothered as I don't send in. It's clear what's required, though there's plenty of room for...

No-one here? Oh my! Lots of opportunities to go wrong, but a nice work out. Don't you just love the numericals?...

Good fun but it became obvious a bit too early what it was all about.

A brisk romp through some neat (but not too taxing) clues and then a mercifully brief grid stare - another entry-level Listener, but a very pleasant one. Thanks Paddock - plenty of time now for the...

No doubt there's a thread lurking, not yet appearing in AB search, though I've looked hard enough... I failed at the first hurdle - I couldn't find the puzzle! It's usually at the bottom of the home...

Having been away on holiday a lot recently and playing catch up with numerous crosswords that we do and just about got there, this was a pleasing puzzle to solve. Neatly constructed and entertaining...

A fantastic puzzle celebrating a memorable moment. I solved the clues quite quickly but found the long endgame quite fiddly. My only snag is that I have an "I" left over to fit in the bottom row and...
