Train of thought of husband during walk (6)


I believe the answer is:


'train of thought' is the definition.
(as in following the thread)

'husband during walk' is the wordplay.
'husband' becomes 'h'.
'during' is an insertion indicator.
'walk' becomes 'tread' (treading is a kind of walking).
'h' put into 'tread' is 'THREAD'.

'of' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for thread that I've seen before include "Twine" , "'Strand of cotton, silk etc (6)'" , "Dearth of stitching material" , "Fine strand" , "Thin yarn" .)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
