Trap I've set for soldier (7)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

private

'for soldier' is the definition.
(private is a type of soldier)

'trap i've set' is the wordplay.
'set' indicates an anagram (instruction to set the letters).
'trap'+'ive'='trapive'
'trapive' is an anagram of 'PRIVATE'.

(Other definitions for private that I've seen before include "retiring" , "Secret - soldier of the lowest rank" , "Small missile; tuck" , "Not open to scrutiny" , "ranker" .)
