Make sense of reporting to base (10)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

understand

Here is my best explanation:

'make sense of' is the definition.

(I've seen this before)

'reporting to base' is the subsidiary indication.

'reporting to' becomes 'under'.

'base' becomes 'stand' ('stand' can be a synonym of 'base').

'under'+'stand'='understand'

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

(Other definitions for understand that I've seen before include "Comprehend", "Grasp - sympathise", "Get the message", "Make sense of", "Perceive the meaning of" and "See".)
