Civilian fighting force (7)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

militia

'civilian fighting force' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

This is the entire clue.

(Other definitions for militia that I've seen before include "Citizen soldiery" , "Civilian fighting force" , "Civilian army force" , "Force raised for emergency" , "Armed body" .)

I've seen this clue in the Evening Standard.
