Re(7): GCHQ Christmas card puzzle

I did much the same as John, although I also found the correct Cipher keyword. I thought that the instructions actually ruled out multiple answers, and was quite satisfied with my answer to Sum (lxxxiv), which was both the three normal answers to the sum in descending order (l,xx,xiv) and the sum of those answers.

My submitted answer to Message was based on the strange wording of the start of its preamble which seemed to have been deliberately crafted to use words beginning with different early letters of the alphabet. I clearly overthought that one.
