Soldiers in camp - sorry, on manoeuvres (4,5)


I believe the answer is:

army corps

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'soldiers in' is the definition.
The definition suggests a singular noun which matches the answer.

'camp sorry on manoeuvres' is the wordplay.
'on manoeuvres' indicates an anagram (the letters manoeuvre into a new form).
'campsorry' is an anagram of 'ARMY CORPS'.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Another definition for army corps that I've seen is " Military unit".)

I've seen this clue in The Globe and Mail.
