Hi Marnie,
I struggled with the first of these and put in
TWO SHAKES OF A LAMBS TAIL (the Suffolk is a variety of sheep)
50a ALL THE WORLD AND HIS WIFE hence the Dutch
Hope this helps tou finish the beast!
Regards,
Jerry

I found this week very hard, and strangely unsatisfying.
I still have one to go.
39a. Move house when fine and settled.(4) f?i?
Is it FLIT ?

Flit is ok - F(ine) + lit (Chambers: light - to settle) = Flit (to move house (informal, esp Scottish))
