Thanks. i looked at MANOR and saw the link to estate, but struggled with the island bit. I also understood gold to be au, not a, but its a long time since i did chemistry

Hi Philip,
The other answer you are looking for is DIWALI,
tis an anagram of A WILD I
Good wishes,
Jerry

Philip,
Apropos the MANOR,the island is the Isle Of MAN,
you are quite right about AU being gold,but OR
is the heraldic term for gold,and a great favourite with Xword setters.
Regards,
J
