S'ok Robin'.

I imagine it must be demanding for you living in the woods with a bunch of merry men.

I also thought of 'sowar' and 'sepoy' but can't yet see why they must be the answer.

Hi.

stale perspiration, it seems, has long been soldierly(3,5)".
old sweat = a veteran soldier.

Hi again.

dekko is the answer to your original clue ('dekho' = 'glance' in Hindustani).
