Hint concerning bodyguard (8)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

reminder

Here is my best explanation:

'hint' is the definition.

(I've seen this before)

'concerning bodyguard' is the subsidiary indication.

'concerning' becomes 're'.

'bodyguard' becomes 'minder' (I've seen this in other clues).

're'+'minder'='reminder'

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for reminder that I've seen before include "Nudge", "Memo - souvenir", "Memento", "Memory refresher", "Aide-memoire", "Jog to the memory", "Aide-mmoire", "Memory jogger", "Hint, suggestion" and "Knot in handkerchief?".)
