Suppress German silver (3)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

gag

Here is my best explanation:

'suppress' is the definition.

(thesaurus)

'german silver' is the subsidiary indication.

'german' becomes 'g' (abbreviation).

'silver' becomes 'ag' ('Ag' can be a synonym of 'silver').

'g'+'ag'='gag'

This clue was last seen in Mirror

(Other definitions for gag that I've seen before include "Choke; joke", "Put a muzzle on the joke", "Palindromic muxxle", "Muzzle in palindrome form", "Restriction; joke", "Make quiet", "Joke; choke", "Stop the mouth with a joke", "A palindromic joke or muzzle" and "that renders one speechless".)
