Dismay of criminal's time with Queen and Country (13)
I believe the answer is:
Here is my best explanation:
'dismay' is the definition.
('consternation' can be a synonym of 'dismay')
'of criminal's time with queen and country' is the subsidiary indication.
I cannot really see how this works, but
'of' could be 'o' and 'o' is present in the answer.
'time' could be 't' and 't' is present in the answer.
'queen' could be 'er' (abbreviation for Elizabeth Regina) and 'er' is present in the answer.
'and' could be 'n' (common abbreviation for 'and') and 'n' is present in the answer.
'country' could be 'nation' ('nation' can be a synonym of 'country') and 'nation' is present in the answer.
This may be the basis of clue (or it may be nonsense).
(Other definitions for consternation that I've seen before include "Worry", "Alarm", "Anxiety, dismay", "Feelings of dismay", "Dismay - cast-iron tenon (anag)" and "feelings".)
