  1. SPOILER ALERT

    The nine “themed” clues are 9a, 11a, 14a, 22a, 23/17a, 2d, 4d, 21d, 24d.

  2. ANOTHER SPOILER ALERT!!!

    16a is CARRY-ON.
    Each themed clue requires ON to be added to the definition. Hence …
    9a MARCH > MONARCH
    11a HEY > HONEY
    14a BUS > BONUS
    22a BE > BONE
    23/17a TIGHT > TONIGHT
    … and so on.

  3. Dear Geoff M, thank you. You have saved me from certain madness! Much appreciated!

  4. Thanks, Geoff M. Sometimes I develop a blind spot I just can’t get past. I’d assumed the theme must be you added a word to the clue or “carried on” with the clue.

  5. Thanks Geoff
    That’s good ; I was wanting to add on to the answer (definition) didn’t think of adding it to the clue. Good one DA!
    Good to know about this thread when the brain is stuck.
