Old soldier (7)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

veteran

'old soldier' is the definition.
(veteran can mean a former soldier)

This is the entire clue.

(Other definitions for veteran that I've seen before include "Nervate (anag.)" , "An old hand or ex-soldier in USA" , "One of great experience" , "Describing cars built before 1919, especially before 1905" , "Person with long experience, as in American army" .)

I've seen this clue in The Mirror, The Independent, the Evening Standard and The Sun.
