Times Quick Cryptic 1471 by Teazel

Another over-target 12 minutes today caused by longish holdups on clues around the grid where the definition wasn’t obvious to me - the best example being LOI 10ac. I’m not sure that this puzzle is as tricky as I made it so please see the times of others for a more reliable view of today's difficulty.

I found some of this quite tricky as there were a few words and bits of GK that I didn't know. But it was every enjoyable and held my interest so that I never felt it was going to beat me. In the end I completed the grid in 44 minutes.
