A Caesar cipher encodes words by shifting the letters by a set number of places. For example with a Caesar cipher of 2, CAT becomes ECV. Applying a Caesar cipher of 13, how many solutions in this crossword have recognisable words that result from the encoding process (proper nouns included).

The following table will assist:

+ – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – +

Solvers should submit the number, and nothing else, in the answer box below. There is no need to send a completed grid or solution, or to explain your answer. Closing date for entries is midnight on September 21st 2019. The winner will receive their choice of any of the Telegraph Crossword Books. In the event of two or more entries being received from the same solver all of these entries will be disqualified, except that mistakes can be corrected by using the box below and clearly requesting that the earlier entry be withdrawn. The winner will be drawn at random from the correct entries. Editor’s decision is final.

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

A review will be published after the closing date.
