Undaunted and home on time with pride broken (8)


I believe the answer is:


'undaunted' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'home on time with pride broken' is the wordplay.
'home' becomes 'in' ('he's home' can mean 'he's in').
'on' indicates putting letters inside.
'time' becomes 't' (abbreviation).
'with' is a charade indicator (letters next to each other).
'broken' indicates an anagram.
'tpride' anagrammed gives 'trepid'.
'in' inserted into 'trepid' is 'INTREPID'.

'and' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for intrepid that I've seen before include "without fear" , "'Brave, dauntless (8)'" , "Invulnerable to fear" , "stout" , "Audacious" .)
