I have already given you the correct answer and also confirmed that your existing letters were in order.
The answer WOLLY can be confirmed in Chambers.

I think the answer Wally is correct, it is just dahn in sarf london we spell (and pronounce) the word Wolly as "Wally".
Rhymes with Jolly -
(or Collie, a bit like J from A's dog, if she was a Collie - doesn't look like one tho...
...how about, volley, or Folly?

Hi Trevor
I am sticking to my WOLLY here- not WaLLY OR EVEN wILLY.
My authority comes from Blessed Chambers.
WOLLY-a pickled olive or cucumber. Origin uncertain,the street cry "Oh!Olives!" suggested.
