Hello all.

"Eternally youthful duchess's elegance some recalled" - ageless.

"...wrong when defending manuscript writer sent in" = amiss. Something to do with (Martin/Kingsley) Amis? (This clue 'ran on' from the previous one but I don't think that's important in this case.)

"Buddhist pries goes up to school for mixture" = amalgam. I'm not getting the 'gam'.

Many thanks.

gam, is a school of whales, I think.

ageless is written backwards in the clue.

wrong = Amiss
when - as.
defending manuscript - ms.
writer - I(the person writing) sent in

I don't like this clue, it seems a bit clumsy. (If I am right)

Trevor,
Yes, gam is a school of whales. I remember seeing it a million years ago on "Call My Bluff" with Patrick Campbell.
