3D Crossword Solution – August 2021

August 2021 puzzle page

Clues and Grid by Sirius. The winner of the August puzzle was Janet Brown of Stroud. We were told that solutions of blue highlighted clues are of a kind, as are those in yellow, cryptically. A word for the ‘blues’ and a word for the ‘yellows’ combine to make a thematic example of the ‘greens’.
