For example, Tommy and soldiers, those working together (10)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

cooperants

'those working together' is the definition.
(people who co-operate)

'for example tommy and soldiers' is the wordplay.
'for example tommy' becomes 'Cooper' (comedian Tommy Cooper).
'and' is a charade indicator (letters next to each other).
'soldiers' becomes 'ants' (I've seen this before).
'cooper'+'ants'='COOPERANTS'

I've seen this clue in The Times.
