I also entered Masefield's spelling and so was dismayed to find that this will be marked wrong.
I would have thought that either spelling should be equally acceptable, as both show that the theme was fully understood, and neither is cross-checked by any real crossword-solving skills. Even though the Chambers spelling was asked for in the preamble, I did think that it was a bit below the belt, giving the impression of having been done to trip people up.
That said, it was an enjoyable puzzle to solve. Replies:
