Sailor with two sets of playing-cards? (8)
I believe the answer is:
'sailor' is the definition.
(I know that deckhand is a type of Jack)
'with two sets of playing-cards?' is the wordplay.
I cannot quite understand how this works, but
'with' could be 'and' and 'and' is present in the answer.
'cards?' could be 'deck' (deck of cards) and 'deck' is found in the answer.
A single letter 'h' remains which might be clued in a way I don't see.
This explanation may well be incorrect...
Can you help me to learn more?
(Other definitions for deckhand that I've seen before include "crew member" , "Ship worker" , "seaman" , "one employed on board?" .)
