Bonjour Jerry!!
I can see the anagram and had it on a short list but do not really undertand the wordplay i.e. the reference to "They are hills". But - thanks a lot and I shall struggle on.
Au revoir,
Bob

Hi Bob,
According to the gospel of St.Chambers "un-Englished" means NOT translated into English,
hence Sind Hegeln is not translated into English.
Hope this clears the matter up,
A bentoit,
Jerry

Hi DJ.

I'm guessing that the 'x' comes from 'extrusive' for 14d. But ... I think that 'extrusive' isn't the answer as 'Old boy' can just be abbreviated as 'OB'.

DJ.

I should have added that if you still need the answer/wordplay for 16 across, please let me know.
