ogrish is correct, 313d is silk because of their traditional silk gowns worn, moulds for 265a and not sure on meal, i'm stuck on that too, but it looks right

thanks susiecue,
i looked up marl in the oxford dictioary after montereyjack suggested it and it came up with -
an unconsolidated sedimentary rock or soil consisting of clay and lime, formerly used as fertilizer: the ancient right to dig marl for fertilizer
[count noun]: the road cuttings show red and green marls

and meal i couldnt find anything to with fertiliser in it, but i know what you mean, i thought of bone meal, fish meal, blood meal as they too are fertilisers.

Now im really stumped Smile

Queen's Counsel is SILK

As members wear silk gowns of a particular design (see court dress), the award of Queen's or King's Counsel is known informally as taking silk, and hence QCs are often colloquially called silks.

You are looking for MARL. Meal is coarsely ground cereal.
