Thanks Sudokolover, I had thought the 'Island' was 'Man' (as in Isle of Man), I've ever heard of 'Crew' as 'Man' before. One for the notebook.

Should have said - onset= first signs,'new order' leads to the anagram.

PS. It's not that I don't like/want to parse the clue - but sometimes I forget the exact wording as I'm replying!
