Solving time:  21 mins.       Held up for some time by thinking a very well-known actress had a U in her name though there was none in the anagram fodder (6 across).

In line with recent practice, will comment on just a few of what seemed to me the trickier clues, but happy to explain any others if asked.

< = reversed


8 BRUISE    “Brews”

10 PIT I (LES) S      Definition = stony     ditch = pit

16 OB (Old Boy = former pupil) LATE   et al <


2 FLEECE     Double definition

4 W (OR = Other ranks = soldiers  M = beginning to move (first letter) ) HOLE

21 PU (up< “ascending”)  FF (ff  very loudly – music)
