Steer clear of military command (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

shun

Here is my best explanation:

This clue is a double definition.

'steer clear' is the first definition.

'military command' is the second definition.

(shun is a common military parade command)

'of' is the link.

(Other definitions for shun that I've seen before include "rigid standing order?", "Avoid - attention!", "Avoid contact", "Cold-shoulder", "Persistently reject", "Send to Coventry", "Avoid, ignore", "Steer clear of", "Ostracise" and "Avoid, keep away from".)
