Before midday I leave to find companion (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

amigo

Here is my best explanation:

'companion' is the definition.

(thesaurus)

'before midday i leave' is the subsidiary indication.

'before midday' becomes 'am'.

'leave' becomes 'go'.

'am'+'i'+'go'='amigo'

'to find' is the link.

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for amigo that I've seen before include "Mexican's mate", "A Spanish pal", "friend abroad", "buddy abroad?", "friend in Uruguay", "Quixote's friend", "Friend in Spanish-speaking areas", "Friend from abroad", "Foreign ally" and "Comrade".)
