Ok, made saddle fit, but it knocks out what I had for \"a useful tool in 48 across\". 48 across I had SAND (question was Filling for a military shelter, I was guessing SAND as in sandbags etc.

The other answer \"green\" still baffles me, as I think I am correct with Pierre (that\'s what gives the E in the middle) First for IOC\'s aristocratic founder. Thanks for your help

I think you are right with green - green as in young, tender and green as in racing colour

Just looked up Limerick songs on Google, and there it was..... There is an ISLE, so seeing as it fits, it's going in! Save's my Tippex too. Thanks for all the contributions, and best wishes with all comps and crosswords in the new year.
