One of the abbreviations used in this puzzle is not in Chambers 12th edition, but it is in Chambers online and Collins dictionary.

The wordplay omits one particular letter whenever it occurs in the solution; the affected clues are asterisked.
Solve the crossword and answer the question (in relation to the grid only) posed by the answers to 1, 5, 11, 13.

Solvers should complete the answer box below. There is no need to send a completed solution. Closing date for entries is midnight on September 21st. The winner will receive their choice of any of the Telegraph Crossword Books published by Hamlyn.

Please note that, due to punitive postal charges, while the competition is open to all, the prize is only available to UK solvers.
