Each of twelve clues com­prises a def­i­ni­tion part and a hid­den con­sec­u­tive jum­ble of the an­swer’s let­ters in­clud­ing one ex­tra let­ter; the ex­tras spell the name (two words) of an or­gan­i­sa­tion cel­e­brat­ing a sig­nif­i­cant an­niver­sary of its 1A (un­clued) this De­cem­ber. One clue is with­out a def­i­ni­tion; its an­swer is the sur­name of the 26 (un­clued) who was the 1D 13D (un­clued) of the or­gan­i­sa­tion. Each of six clues con­sists of def­i­ni­tions of two words of dif­fer­ent lengths; in each case, the­mat­i­cally rel­e­vant let­ters are added to the shorter word to cre­ate the longer one, which is the an­swer to go in the grid. Num­bers in brack­ets re­fer to lengths of en­tries.
