I see today's puzzle has foxed more than just me. Makes a change...

"Retired hatter I believe supplies what priest wears" = beretta (which I know is a priest's hat.)

"Earhole accident: retained this in it perhaps?" = cochlea (part of ear). At first glance, this looked like an anagram of earhole...

Many thanks.

Hi PS.

The priest's hat is spelled biretta. This word appears in reverse in the clue.

Take 'retained' out of 'Earhole accident' and you are left with the letters to make 'cochlea'.
