Soldiers new in Palestinian area must get material (7)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

organza

Here is my best explanation:

'material' is the definition.

(organza is a kind of material)

'soldiers new in palestinian area' is the subsidiary indication.

'soldiers' becomes 'or' (Other Rank).

'new' becomes 'n'.

'in' means one lot of letters goes inside another.

'palestinian area' becomes 'gaza' (I've seen this before).

'n' inserted into 'gaza' is 'ganza'.

'or'+'ganza'='organza'

'must get' is the link.

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

(Other definitions for organza that I've seen before include "Transparent silk material", "Thin stiff dress fabric", "Dress fabric", "Material", "Fabric", "Silky fabric", "A stiff, thin fabric", "Silky cloth", "Silk (or silk-like) fabric" and "Thin stiff natural or synthetic fabric".)
