141a boer war town - LADYSMITH

glad I can Help someone else!


OneCLICKwonder - 11-12-2008 @ 01:39 PM

Whoa there! Hold your horses....there's a few things going wrong here.

YAMATO is correct and LADYSMITH is correct.

But....EXPOUNDER is not right.

The answer for 136across is = ENJOINDER

122down = PANGA
123down = EPOXY
124down = MINIM

I'll hold off sending mine until the weekend in case you need any further help

OCW :)
