Native -- one getting drink in a hole in the ground? (9)
I believe the answer is:
Here is my best explanation:
'native' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)
'one getting drink in a hole in the ground?' is the subsidiary indication.
'one' becomes 'i' (roman numeral).
'getting' is a charade indicator (letters next to each other).
'drink' becomes 'gin' (gin is a kind of drink**).
'in' is an insertion indicator.
'hole in the ground?' becomes 'bore' (bore is a kind of hole in the ground).
'igin' placed into 'abore' is 'aborigine'.
(Other definitions for aborigine that I've seen before include "Old Australian", "Original inhabitant", "In native", "oldest inhabitant", "I was in Oz first"", "Oldest inhabitant", "Native Australian" and "Early Australian".)
