Case of veal is lost (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

valise

Here is my best explanation:

'case' is the definition.

(valise is a kind of case)

'veal is lost' is the subsidiary indication.

'lost' indicates an anagram.

'veal'+'is'='vealis'

'vealis' anagrammed gives 'valise'.

'of' is the link.

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for valise that I've seen before include "Travelling bag", "Small travelling bag or suitcase", "Overnight case", "Overnight bag", "Case", "Bag", "Small overnight bag", "Travel bag", "Small piece of luggage" and "Piece of luggage".)
