30 October - Solution for the last clue and the next cryptic crossword clue



American soldier freed at once, remarkably (11)

Solution – Confederate

American soldier = Confederate

But there are other names for American soldiers like Yankee, GI etc.  So how do you know the answer is "confederate".  Well you know the solution has 11 letters so that's a start.

And then the clue says "freed at once, remarkably".  When you see that "freed at once" has 11 letters, you can tell that "remarkably" is a hint that those letters are scrambled up to make the solution.  And they are the letters used by Confederate.
