Commentary on Today's Puzzle
21d Hooligan boy back on vehicle (6)
In this clue, "boy" is LAD and "back" indicates a reversal, giving DAL. Putting this "on" (after) a vehicle (VAN) gives VANDAL. While this style of construct (i.e., "on" signifying that the former string is placed "after" the latter string) is often seen in an across clue (e.g., see 9a in today's puzzle), methinks it is a bit unusual for a down clue - in which "on" usually signifies "before" (denoting that the former string is piled on top of the latter string to form the solution).
