26a Jock's unshaven ? Wife turning stroppy, gutted. (5)
(hirsi ??? from hirsute?)

2d Timber tree raja, ill, planted in fringes of garden (6)
I assume this is GARJAN (an anagram/ill of raja "inside" GN (fringes of garden), but I can't find the word

17a Old military cap in eg Assam company (5)
I assume this is CHACO either named after the Chaco area and war in S. America or an alternative spelling of Shako. It parses as Cha (assam tea) + co(mpany)

Also could somebody please confirm that Grissly is an alternative spelling of gristly (macabre) and that Proul is an alternative spelling of prowl (to move stealthily)

Many thanks

Yes to proul

Thanks Jo - it is likely to be griesly then, as that does not affect any crossers. I assume grie is an "obsolete" spelling for grey. (obviously I had "gris")
Grie is not in my Chambers, and I'm having no luck with (h)irsi :-((
Question Author
Jo - if it is not Griesly, then the other one would be _ IRS _
I still can't get it though!
Thanks for helping
