Ah, I get it! Very clever!
It's like those "British Crosswords" clues that GAMES magazine used to have.

Mr Shalom, please go to the top of the class!

One of the more straightforward clues from the often devilish crossword published daily in The Scotsman.

I no longer read newspapers however my dear mother-in-law religiously clips out the crossword for me every day, bless her cotton socks.

Cheers

Andrew

P.S. Bill - may I wish you and yours, and of course all Genii readers, a notary sojac when it comes...
