Foreword

Welcome to the thirty seventh in our series of weekly puzzles.

This week we have an unthemed puzzle from Radler.

Setters Notes

In this puzzle I’ve attempted to include a few easier clues among the ones that I hope will provide more of a challenge.  There’s no theme, and no unfamiliar words among the solutions.  As an additional aid, the letters around the perimeter spell something having equivalent value to 20d, 21 and what the early 15 does.
